Thyroid disease is a very misunderstood condition by both physicians and the general population. Because of this, those experiencing thyroid disease symptoms are often dismissed.
We decided to ask our thyroid community to use one word to describe what it’s like to live with thyroid disease. Here’s what they said.
- Life-altering (not in a good way)
- Undead – An old horror movie term that describes a being that is neither fully alive, nor completely dead, but in some purgatory of existence, somewhere on a scale between fully alive, and not.
- I don’t know if one word can simply describe it. All- encompassing would be the closest I could come up with.
- I do not want it happening to anybody!
Thyroid disease is much more difficult to deal with than people often realize because, unlike some other conditions, you can’t always see its effects.
