People need to read our stories there is not enough awareness we need support from not only the sufferers but the public.
Kezzerb, Maybe you're not aware that we have a place on the main Thyroid UK website for people's stories. Anyone here is welcome, and indeed urged, to submit their story for the website. The website is visible to all, so a really excellent way to make your story visible to the public.
We have headings to cover Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Related Mental Illness, Pregnancy & Fertility, Children, Mis-diagnosis, Adverse reaction to thyroid medication and Dangers of untreated autoimmune disease. If your story needs to be under a different heading, we will create one as appropriate.
So, everyone reading here, please consider submitting your story for the Thyroid UK website.
Here's the link to submit your story
You can also (if you are brave enough), make a video of your story to put on Thyroid UK's Web of Stories channel.
To see the stories, go to thyroiduk.org, then 'Get Involved > Case Studies' from the top purple menu bar.
