Well, I've made so many improvements with my health by changing my diet, drinking more water and so on and I've even let my family and friends know about it by posting my progress on Facebook.
Most of them have gotten back to me saying how well I look and are congratulating me on doing so well, but my grandad for some reason doesn't like what I've been posting and I don't know why. In a way it's made me upset because I don't know what I've done wrong and I thought I was making progress. I just don't understand.
You see, the history behind my grandad and I is that I was brought up into the family with no dad. So he was my adoptive dad, in a way. I was his little shadow, following him about and going about with him whenever he went off in the car anywhere.
Since being sick, I wanted to let people who know and knew me know of the struggle I've had with Hashimoto's (doesn't that sound familiar) and I linked my Facebook profile to a page on my website detailing my personal story. I thought it'd let people get an insight into my experience and how much I've struggled with it. I also told them of the changes I made, like going to a support group with fellow thyroid patients, attending reflexology sessions and posting photos of how well I look. I don't understand why he has a problem with it.
I'm off to see my grandparents tomorrow but I'm worried about what's going to happen. Why did he react like that? I thought he'd be pleased that I'm making so much progress. It's really knocked my confidence right down again.
