My Hypothyroid Diary has been published! This covers my diagnosis and the start of my recovery, the effects of flu, flare-ups and an update on management of the condition.
I've posted a few photos.
The photo I took in August 2012 is brutally honest. Please don't criticise me for not accepting my body shape - this isn't about 'acceptance' and body image. As a 'hidden' illness, this is the visual manifestation of this chronic condition when untreated - over 1/3 increase in body weight in 18 months and a BMI which is challenging.
Be prepared - the diary is long!
Have a hearty breakfast and plan a coffee break before you start!
