I have a shocking confession to make. Most of my friends and family will be so disappointed in my online proclamation, but I must finally tell the truth. But before I spill my guts about the offensive act, I feel that I must offer a proper defense. You see, there are extenuating circumstances to my particular crime.
Reason One: While I am pretty candid about some aspects of my life, I am pretty quiet about others. Therefore, most people, including some family members, do not know that I have an auto-immune disorder called Hashimoto’s Disease. This autoimmune disorder means that my body attacks my thyroid causing symptoms of low thyroid (weight gain, pain in arms and legs, inability to regulate temperature, etc.). I knew something was wrong 21 years ago, but could not get most doctors to listen to me. It was only two years ago that a doctor finally ran the correct blood test and confirmed what I already knew. Since that time I have modified my diet, take some supplements, and have some pretty great days, but sometimes if I eat certain foods, I get sluggish. Sometimes I become just too tired to accomplish much of anything.
