I suffer with an under active thyroid and I often come on here for advice and help from others. It's incredible to read your stories and see how everyone copes with their illness.
I'm 21 and I have found that a lot of the information, given to me by the doctors, leaves me feeling more bemused than how I felt when I entered the room. I would love to understand more about the illness and for there to be more help for people who suffer with thyroid conditions too. I know, first hand, that it changes your life and I now want to help people who suffer with the condition too.
I am wondering if there are any fundraising campaigns for thyroid disease or whether anyone has thought of starting an awareness campaign, such as the ALS campaign? I appreciate this is a completely different illness but that's the first example of a campaign that popped into my mind.
I'd love to help make people aware of thyroid problems and the issues that these conditions cause. If anyone has any information then please get hold of me, I'd love to chat with you and discuss any ideas!
