Hi, I'm Lauren 48 mum of 3, NannaBee of 2 and 1 on the way. I've been a single mum for 20 years. In a relationship with a lovely single dad for the last time. But my illnesses and our busy lives mean there's not much time for us. I'm looking to give and receive support to people like me with hypothyroid. Since taking medication I also have hepatic stenosis and side effects which on some days are similar to if I've had a stroke. I've had allergies all my life and I'm intolerant to a lot of Medstead. However I remain positive because of the love I have for my family and friends and empathy for other sufferers. Happy to hear from anyone who would like someone to listen as I know it's not always easy to find.
