These days, I don’t often take time off work or cancel plans due to my hypothyroidism. But every now and then, I may need to due to a flare up. In fact, before I was properly medicated for it, I needed a lot of time off work.

Having been through the ups and downs of having hypothyroidism, I now feel comfortable talking about many aspects of it.

However, it’s still interesting and helpful to try and figure out what lead to my development of hypothyroidism, so that I know better for the future, can advise others and learn by my mistakes.
A care package is a box of items that bring comfort, joy and possibly even help to a loved one.
Care packages can be sent when someone is feeling down, unwell or ‘just because’. There doesn’t even need to be a reason.
For those living with a thyroid condition such as hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s, the below items can make up a care package that can be given in person or even sent in the post, to let someone know you’re thinking of them and want to do something to show you care.
