I don’t want anyone to feel like they have to walk on eggshells around here. No fake smiles or pretending. Sure, try to be positive, but don’t feel like you have to mask how you’re feeling. You don’t have to share every detail with us, but if it helps you, please do. If your day sucks, we want to hear why and all about what happened, so we can try to help you or at least share the burden. Share when you’re happy, sad, frustrated and angry – feel safe here to be in your own skin. Let us unite and support each other. Let’s cry together, but also celebrate success together. We’ll help lift each other up to better days and be there on the not-so-good days.
We are a thyroid family.
