    Story

    Just as Covid restrictions were ending I started feeling really unwell. First I was misdiagnosed then after months of monitoring, tests and waiting I received a diagnosis of hypothyroidism and also primary hyperparathyroidism. Anyone familiar with these conditions will know how drained, achy and generally unwell you can feel on most days just to mention a few of the many symptoms.

    While managing these conditions I will take part in cycling sportives at the end of April and May to raise funds for Parathyroid UK.

    With the NHS and GP services so stretched Thyroid and Parathyroid UK provided information and fantastic support through an online community, the Paratroopers! Without their advice and resources I wouldn’t have been able to advocate for myself and understand the ins and outs of both conditions.

    They also play a crucial role in supporting people with their mental health. People with thyroid conditions suffer mostly in silence with their wide ranging physical and mental symptoms, including extreme fatigue, aches and pains, depression and anxiety, and the way the condition changes their body. We are Patatroopers and try to get on with our daily lives, work and care giving duties without complaining.

      Ride London is only a few days away. I haven’t been able to train much as I had a flare up of my symptoms. With my surgery date finally confirmed for 13th June I know it will be an emotional ride. I hope I’ll feel great and will take the opportunity to soak in all the positive energy!

      At some point I was seriously regretting signing up for this challenge, but I knew I can’t give up. So I digger deep and pushed on with the superpower of jelly babies, coffee, energy drink and my secret weapon, a giant TOMATO! When you’re restricted to eating sweet energy bars, energy gels and energy drink refreshing your palate with a fresh juicy tomato May just do the trick. And it worked!

      I’m so so tired .. but had a wonderful emotional day today. A few weeks ago it seemed almost impossible, but today I completed one of the toughest 100 mile bike races in just over 7 hours. Now time for a well deserved recovery! Ride LondonEssex is at the end of the month, then I’ll be ready for my parathyroid surgery 🤞
