After Harriet was born in 2007 I started to feel poorly, no energy, brain fog, poor skin, hair loss, feeling down (the list goes on) it took 7 years of Doctor apps, many blood tests and feeling ill to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I’m now on medication for the condition which I have to take for life. The tablets help with the symptoms but there are many days I just don’t feel well, it’s very hard to explain to anyone how I feel especially when I ‘dont look ill’
Anyhow I really really want to raise awareness for thyroid disease but also other immune conditions so any spare pennies you have and can donate id be really grateful.
Fatigue plays a big part in my condition, my children see me when I’m not well to often, I want to show my 2 girls that you can achieve things when you put your mind to it hence I thought I’d try running a half marathon 😊👍
