  1. 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,

    1. 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?
