This is my personal story regarding symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for autoimmune hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and other metabolic-related conditions that developed co-morbid to my thyroid disease. I also share information regarding my symptom-struggles including emotional aspects and about my difficulties in finding a doctor experienced in treating thyroid disease with related conditions attached to it.
I also include a chapter about my reason for becoming a Thyroid Patient Advocate and about the growing importance for public education on thyroid diseases. It is my hope that my story will inspire other patients to become proactive in obtaining quality care for their health disorders and to partner with their doctors to achieve this. I also hope this audiobook will serve to inspire patients with difficult thyroid disease cases, to achieve coping skills for gaining a better quality-of-life. This audiobook is not intended to be an extensive medical manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subject.
