Hi my name is Dan, I got diagnosed with Hashimoto's in March 2016, but I think I've had it for at least 15 years prior to diagnosis (I'm 30 years old). I've been quietly following this community ever since, reading posts every morning before work and learning a lot. I've incorporated a lot of your advices (even if they weren't directed to me) and even tho I'm not 100% better, the advice you all give on here has helped tremendously. I will eventually post my labs and symptoms, but first I just wanted to finally make my first post by saying a huge THANK YOU to everyone in this community. You guys give strength to those who sometimes fall, and this is no small deed. Without this community I can only imagine where i'd be. Once again thank you all!
