This is part seven of my selection of songs that motivate, inspire, uplift or otherwise connect with me on tough health days.

I find music to be the best remedy for when I’m feeling low, fed up, defeated or frustrated, especially during thyroid flare up periods, so I’m going to share my favourites for when I feel down, defeated, frustrated or otherwise struggling. I hope you like them too.

You can find the playlist on my YouTube channel here.

So here are my next ten songs, numbers 61 to 70.

61. You Don’t Know About Me by Ella Vos

You don’t know about me
You don’t know how hard I try
You don’t know about me
Why the hell should you decide?
You don’t know about everything going on inside
You don’t know about me

When you live with a health condition, you often find that a lot of people have opinions on what is best for you and what you should be doing. This song is great for a response to those people.

62. White Flag by Sabrina Carpenter

When you’re struggling on a bad thyroid day and perhaps need to be reminded that you’ll have better days and to keep on going, this is an uplifting tune to put on.

Give everything I’ve got
Out of reach but I’ll take a shot
Kick rocks in the parking lot
Feel like giving up, but I’ll never stop

63. Bruised Not Broken by Matoma

Another great song for reminding yourself that you’ll get back on top of your health and overcome any current struggles in your health. Whether that’s thyroid symptoms impacting you day to day, or a series of unfruitful medical appointments.
So I do what I gotta do
Whatever will put me through
I put myself back together, I put myself back together
No I, don’t wanna be sad and blue
Even if I’m black and blue, I put myself back together ‘Cause I am
Bruised but I’m not broken
Damaged, but I’m coping
Holding on and hoping
I’ll find where I’m going
Bruised but I’m not broken
Took some time to own it
And though I may hurt sometimes
I know I will be alright

64. OK (Anxiety Anthem) by Mabel

Many of us with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s also experience mental health struggles such as anxiety. All the lyrics in this song are hugely relatable.

Wake up with a knot in my chest
Tried everything just to get out of bed
It’s ain’t working, it ain’t working
Sometimes I can get like this
Cover it up with a smile on my face
But I’m hurting, I’m still hurting

65. Black and Blue by Nina Nesbitt

Oh, I’ve been low, losing my head
Underwater, out of breath
Healing bruises in my brain, oh-woah

This chilled song can be reassuring if you feel as if you’re struggling to keep on top of everything as well as move forward in your health.

66. Up by The Saturdays

Although clearly a song originally written about a romantic relationship, this song can take on another meaning of progressing with your health, taking control and advocating for your thyroid condition. “I only go up,” it a motto a lot of us could use!

I’m ready for the lift up,
Keep steady beat
‘Cause I’m ready for the big jump,
Keep up with me,
If you lose me then you know,
You’re just a bit too slow,
I only go up, up.
I’m ready to be in control
And the ground isn’t good enough for me,
I know where to find what I want and I’m gonna keep on,
Keep on, up, up.

67. You Can’t Stop The Beat by Hairspray

This is such a feel-good song that you can’t help but dance. It never fails to put me in a good mood!

68. Good As Hell by Lizzo

A great girl anthem, perfect for empowerment, it’s not about having health conditions at all, but does remind you of your self-worth.

69.  You Bring Me Joy by The Guest and The Host

This is another uplifting, chilled, summery song which I tend to put on in the morning when getting ready for the day. If I’ve woken up feeling less-than-great thanks to my thyroid condition, it helps to clear my mind.

70. Rescue Me by One Republic


Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? 
Would you rescue me when I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me?

When we’re having a tough time, it can be useful to know that we have people around us to rely on and show us support. That’s what this song by One Republic reminds me of.
