Changes That Thyroid Caused in My Life
As you can see, the Thyroid has bestowed upon me numerous side effects:
- Weight gain
- Change of skin tone
- Dry skin
- Irregular periods
- Irritation 24*7
- Loss of hair
- Weak bones
- Trembling hands
- Voice change
At times, I wonder why the hell I’m still living. Is there anything else I can do to be myself? I’m never by myself. All of these are always with me. I’m completely shattered. But then there’s my source of motivation: my family. They inspired me to start my own business. I don’t particularly appreciate looking in the mirror. They compel me to accept and adore myself. Then I began the weight-loss race, but sloth triumphs and despair overcame my willpower. Back to the pavilion we go.
I often asked my therapist, does it happen with you? What do you do to overcome it? How do you motivate yourself? And the therapist just smiled. This is life; you have to live it. Try and be happy. Just rewind and hear what I just said.
I always felt as if nothing is left. Nothing can be done. Everybody wants me to be happy. But how? The therapist said, meditate, watch television, play with kids, help you, parents, and pray!
It’s tough to persuade growing children that we can live everyday life with thyroid disease. “Anxiety dominates them, inflexible thoughts rule them, feel weak, loneliness governs them, but they still try to outrun the guilt that they are sick by staring at their parents.”
