The Mighty is an article website, built on stories written by real people, with real challenges, telling real stories.
The Mighty has a huge readership of 125 million readers and aims to spread awareness of mental health, disabilities and diseases, by sharing the stories of those who live with depression, autism, fibromyalgia and thyroid disease, to name just a few conditions.
The long list of chronic health conditions they cover, is here.
Now, I’ve been following The Mighty and have enjoyed reading the articles posted on there for a good few months. So, I decided to submit a piece for their site. My blog piece When People Belittle Our Thyroid Disease is the piece I’ve gone with, and it’s just gone live! 🙂
You can see it here – When People Belittle My Thyroid Disease
Of course, I’ll carry on blogging and writing regular posts for this site, but I hope writing for The Mighty occasionally will enable me to reach as many thyroid patients as possible, seeing as they have such a huge readership.
I want to reach as many thyroid patients as I can, to tell them that it’s not normal to live a sub-standard quality of life with thyroid disease, and you don’t have to accept it!
All of my Mighty articles can be found here.
