I have a couple of days annual leave with all the good intentions of having a clear out and giving my neglected home a good 'spring clean' - in between straying to post on here!
I'm a bit of a hoarder and decided enough is enough and some stuff just has to go. Looking into my wardrobe and chest of drawers I suddenly realised my thyroid journey can be mapped by the contents.
How many pairs of trousers and skirts does one person need anyway? How many shoes and bras? Answer - depends on thyroid status and whether I weigh 6 or 11 half stone!
I still have one hyperthyroid size 8 trousers which were too big for me then anyway, alongside my hypothyroid size16s and all the sizes in between.
I've even got different shoes sizes as swollen feet waxed and waned between size 5 1/2 and seven! I thought it was the blinking global market mucking about with sizing. The bras which signify a voluptuous bosom alongside a couple of pitiful empty sacks are now in the bin!
I'm settled on 150mcg one day and 175mcg the next = size 10 and I'm not budging - for now.
If only I had found a site like this before, I could have saved my self a fortune!
p.s just a lighthearted post for once and in no way intended to diminish the pain so many people are going through on their personal journey....
