Hi from a newbie

Hi from a newbie

A brief history - have managed to upload more than 30kg since treatment for Graves Disease. It has been both a physical and mental struggle to come to terms with where I am now. Because I know that only I can change this, there are various options I have explored to deal with this. None has been successful.

I am hoping that by coming here, not only can I get some help/support, but also help anyone else who is in a similar situation.

Best wishes to all and hope you have a wonderful day.

  • Hi and thanks for that. Also have IBS-D mainly. Know where all the toilets are esp when have to go out. So sorry that you have Coeliac as I know how much it impacts on your life - shopping, cooking and eating out (even at friends/family). A very sorry set of affairs.

    In some ways it is good to know that I am not alone, but in others feel so bad that there are so many dealing with so many and varied problems.

    Take care too and hope you have a good week Patricia
