So basically, let me begin with what caused me to go for those needle prick investigation when I am so afraid of needles. Let’s say I am a classic textbook version of hypothyroidism, so I had all the classic symptoms. For those lucky unaware readers first let me list down the long list of symptoms associated with hypothyroidism. Now since the list is made by me, so it will be a list of my symptoms. See you rule when you have your own blog!
- Weight gain
- Dryness of hair, skin and eyes
- Cracking nails
- Mouth ulcers
This is not an exhaustive list, but the biggest problem was that I was sad and miserable all the time. Didn’t feel like doing much or even trying anything new. I didn’t like talking to people and was most of the time in my own capsulated world. So basically, I was feeling pathetic, and I had to do something for it. A sudden bout of Gastroenteritis triggered a series of pathological investigation. Also, I was so tired of being what I had become and wanted to overcome it any cost. So finally, the results arrived, and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and severe deficiency of vitamin B12 and D3. But this brought such relief for me, because now I knew the reason for my problems and finally, I could see light at the end of the tunnel. So I had a broad smile after seeing my reports and the doctor exclaimed, “I think I made a wrong diagnosis, it’s not hypothyroidism but Happythyroidism” And I totally agreed with him, I was happy after a long time and knew the reason for my various ailments. Also, I knew it was real and not something in my head. So here I begin my journey of Happythyroidism. This post is just the beginning and will continue. I know it is a long struggle and we will slowly conquer every fight. So, this series will continue and will have all little special things that work for me and will work for other also. So cheer-up girls …let’s make it Happythyroidism..and a motivating factor for a better and healthier life!
