Although I've had antibodies for over twenty years, I've only recently become aware of the hypothyroid treatment crisis. My daughter who also has Hashimotos is more IT familiar than I am and passes info on to me.
I don't understand why there is so little about it in the media.
There should be newspaper and magazine articles, more petitions and even marches of protest. Perhaps it's because we all feel too ill and exhausted to leave the house!
Maybe too it's because the majority of hypothyroid patients are women. Maybe it's a feminist issue but if breast cancer patients can have marathons and pink ribbon days and raise funding and support, perhaps we need to do something similar?
How can we raise public awareness and fight this thing?
