I have only touched on the emotional part of my struggles with thyroid disease in my books. It is always difficult to describe the feelings and emotions that arise when dealing with thyroid problems. It is especially difficult to do it in writing and to really convey it.
I decided today to make an attempt to describe my own story on video. It was clearly unscripted as you will see. But I still think it tells a story that may not be fully evident from my written work, or any posts I have put on my website or on Facebook.
I hope that you find some insight from it (and that you can put up with a few minor mistakes).
I hope it makes some of you who are struggling with similar issues feel that you are not alone and that others have been through it and survived.
I would also be grateful if any of you have any contact with journalists working in the health area, ask them to consider talking to me about my experiences with thyroid disease, poor treatment practices, and eventual recovery.
