Michelle’s thyroid story


Listen Now!


Sharing our thyroid stories does a few things. It raises awareness of thyroid health as we all have slightly different experiences. It helps those telling the stories reflect on where they have come in their journey and it offers hope for those still struggling with their own health.

Michelle’s thyroid story offers all these things. Michelle was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in her early twenties and was put on medication but her thyroid antibody levels were never tested. It wasn’t until about 25 years later she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s.

Trusting her instincts that she wasn’t ‘crazy’ she kept trying to get help. This seems to be a common story for those not yet diagnosed with Hashimoto’s… they know something isn’t ‘right’ but have trouble identifying what it is.

Michelle has done a lot of inner work on her attitude, mindset and taken responsibility for managing her health. She’s taken time to build a supportive ‘team’ around her – moving to a quieter place, some good friends, a doctor & naturopath to work with and loves our online Let’s Talk Thyroid Community too.

It’s funny because without her realising, she covers a few things we covered in last weeks episode too about saying no! 

Thank you Michelle for sharing your thyroid story with us all, I know many will benefit.
