    Hello Sarah,

    Very nice video! So nice to see you “live” and in moving person.

    May the January thyroid-awareness butterflies fly… and fly … and brighten up the sky … with new insights and hopefully one day a real cure (other than an ill-balanced pill a day)

    Thanks so much for sharing,

    Thank you very much, HD!

    Let us hope for a cure – one day at least! Failing that, let us hope for more doctors who listen and explore all possibilities.



    PS: The video itself is now featured on http://iamthefaceofthyroiddisease.org/.

      Hi Margaret,

      I am happy to share my story if it helps others because so many of us go through this hell, so it helps us to know that we are not alone. How are you doing now that you have been diagnosed and are on medication?
