Hello Thyroid Family,
I am officially on maternity leave now (well, my own version of it! I'll still be doing some work to maintain The Invisible Hypothyroidism but I have pulled back on my hours a lot.) How are you all doing?
I have another new thyroid book review for you and it's a book I think every thyroid patient (and doctor) should read. I've linked to it below. Tears Behind Close Doors is an emotional read about how so many of us with hypothyroidism are seriously being let down by the medical profession.
I thought it was also worth reminding us all that improving your health and learning to thrive again, with thyroid issues, doesn’t mean fixing everything overnight. You can take it a step at a time and still make good progress. We can quickly feel overwhelmed if we feel like we have to do everything at once.
So try to take things one at a time, choosing one of your targets to work on first, and keep a record of how any changes or interventions help you - or perhaps don’t help you. We’re all different after all and different things help different people. But your journey is just that: Your journey.
For ideas on things to explore, see my checklist here.
