My daughter was diagnosed with thyroid problems after giving birth to her son eight years ago.
My friend CL battled mysterious medical problems until discovering he too had a thyroid condition that he has under control now.
Recently, I went for my annual medical checkup and have learned that I've joined the club. Had symptoms, odd aches and pains and a lack of energy that I thought might be age-normative, for I am on the down slope shall we say--but alas a blood test revealed the truth.
Ha, I've added a thyroid medication to my growing list of legal drugs that I consume daily. The heart, liver, lungs and colon are good for now, but I've joined the masses with the thyroid thing.
I hope the miracle drug works and the long list of negative side effects don't appear and my energy comes back. Watch out! I might yet again be a dynamo.
Ain't it grand?
