|Thyroid Success Stories|
by Mary Shomon
So much of what I cover here at the website focuses on the problems -- problems with doctors who don't listen, or thyroid drugs that don't solve all your problems, or symptoms and side effects of thyroid disease. It seems we often focus on learning from our own and other's mistakes and problems. But an important aspect of healing -- true healing from within -- is the belief that there are solutions, and there is success, and that healing is possible.
So, what better way to focus on healing, and to get ideas on how we can all work towards better health and healing, than to hear the success stories from those people with thyroid disease -- including hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's Disease, hyperthyroidism, Graves' disease, thyroid cancer, and other conditions -- who have a positive success story to tell!
So, read about your fellow thyroid patients and the solutions they've found. I hope they offer your the encouragement, hope and inspiration that they offer me! And be sure to check back frequently for new stories added regularly!
