Learning to live with a chronic condition

Fair warning – this is just a dump of the thoughts and emotions one goes through. Everyone will be different, with different conditions, severity, prognosis and circumstances. We all go through a learning curve. If you are in this space in your life, drop by and say “Hi!”. If you have a friend or family […]

Quick health update (following on from Friday)

On Friday I wrote about being in pain again. I’m sharing these little ups and downs so others on this journey can see what may happen, even after diagnosis! Today is Tuesday and I have just got back from the GP. I got home from work walking stooped over. Everything from my waist down is […]

This week has been my second week on the medication that is hoped to pull my over-active, uninvited, toxic thyroid nodules into line and by yesterday I […]
