Explaining Thyroid Issues

Thyroid disease is the largest epidemic in American history. Why no research since the 1950s??? Why no cure or effective treatment yet???:

I am a Mental Health Advocate for mental illness Stigma. In 2007, I created the "Living in Stigma" blog, with the purpose and anticipation of educating people about mental illness. Depression is part of this illness, which intertwines with those struggling with PTSD, chronic pain, and other invisible illnesses. I am a chronic migraine sufferer myself, and a sexual and emotional abuse survivor. My passions are writing, poetry, and art. All abuse Survivors are also Warriors.

  1. I’ve hypothyroidism for about 10 years or so. It started at about 35. I think the medication I was taking started it (Lithium), but my maternal grandmother and sister also had/have it and they never took Lithium. It’s good to have that test during annual physicals. It’s so easy to treat with just a little pill every day.

  2. Thanks for this article. I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid, so put on meds, and now, the dr. Tells me that my thyroid is slightly over functioning! So they might have to reduce my meds! How on earth does this happen I wonder? Oh and I’ve been meaning to write to you about what you said about my writing, and you making a quote? Of course you can! Please use whatever you like if you want. I think I answered you incorrectly. Oops so sorry if I did. Bipolar is a bitch! Lol xxxxx

    1. These little infographics have explained more to “regular people” compared to some sites that take 10 paragraphs to get to the meat of the matter. Sure they are a quick read through (someone asked me, ‘can they they elaborate more?)….um…that’s why we have these…and if you want to know more then that’s up to you. Mental illness is a bitch! 🙂
