video: hypothyroidism and WTF is up with my health

I filmed this video two months ago (wow! my hair has grown), but I was reluctant to post it at first. When all the other life drama hit, I decided to shelve it for a few weeks. Now that I’m embarking on a whole new health journey/experiment, I think the time is ripe to share my story.

I’ve written about my issues with weight, but I’ve never truly shared my story. This video barely covers the surface, but I like to think that this is my form of advocacy. If in doubt, keep searching for a second/third/fourth opinion. Health above all.

  1. It is so frustrating when doctors don’t listen. I had a similar experience regarding my cycle. They just assumed I couldn’t deal with “cramps” but after going through three labors/deliveries, I discovered my experiences were closer to that transition phase of labor. Turns out it’s a sign of endometriosis. Who knew? Teen girl actually WAS telling the full truth of it? Huh.

    1. Sigh. I know. It’s one of the reasons I’m somewhat hesitant to see a doctor until I have enough research to back up my arguments. It shouldn’t have to be this way. Who knows your body better than you?
