Does anyone else
Get annoyed at the fact that nobody really understands what Thyroid Disease is?
Thyroid Disease is pretty serious, especially if it goes untreated for a long time, and people do not get that.
People do not get how much the thyroid is responsible for.
Does that bug anyone else from time to time?
It makes me feel like people don’t really take it seriously.
Like if I tell people how I am feeling, or stuff I have been through because of the disease they think that it is just something I can control on my own..and it is not…
Yes. Exactly. Thyroid Disease is no walk in the park because usually we’re too achy to get up and get to the park anyway. I got so sick I ended up in the ER before even doctors would take me seriously. I hate it when people make fun of “glandular problems”. It’s possible to lose weight once you’re on the right medication, but it is so much more complicated than that. Life is more complicated with thyroid problems and people just don’t understand that. Most of the time they don’t even try to understand.
