And why wouldn’t I be? I am fit and relatively healthy – aside from a chronic condition that I hardly acknowledge. For the record I have an Underactive Thyroid – or hypothyroidism. This means, in essence that my Thyroid gland has failed – so much so that I have to have the maximum dose of medication to survive.

  • Bone Crushing Tiredness – Literally falling asleep whilst on my feet
  • Memory Loss – I mean I cannot remember what I came here for so started writing this!
  • Exhaustion from simply thinking too much
  • Weight gain – I know I have a love of cake, but surely…..its not that?
  • Did I mention tiredness?
  • Lack of Concentration – I am losing my thread…
