So it turns out I now have another organ system that decided it had enough of the party. We’ve ascribed the fatigue etc to my persistent and treatment-refractory #anaemia, but it turns out my is also slowing down. Whee, fun. Amidst all my sarcasm, though, I have to acknowledge with gratitude that it was picked up early and that there are great medications that can effectively substitute for the thyroid. I’m so grateful it was ‘just’ my thyroid – most other organ systems can’t be replaced that easily!
