don,t give up

I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid many years ago but as my symptons were not slowing down or putting on weight it was not recognized and by the time it was I had lost all eyebrows the whole lot but I had to get it together and i had my eyebrows tatttooed on learned how to put very ordinary eyelashes the 02 by eyelure and really had to cope with it as I had a disabled daughter and other children to look after the eyebrows and lashes never came back but I am so adept in putting on a new face no one even notices and I feel that my efforts have worked , you no what they say laugh and the world laughs with you weep and you weep alone , so if you do lose all there are ways off coping best of luck ,by the way i have been on a 100gms of thyroxine a day ever since

So weird to read this right now, I was literally just looking in the bathroom mirror and realised my left eyebrow is nearly completely gone! Some days I swear I look ten years older than what I am 😏 I'm just having a bit of a bad day so I'm feeling sorry for myself now 😔


Glad to hear you are feeling better. You sound like a fighter!
