Laurie Edwards is the author of “Life Disrupted: Getting Real About Chronic Illness in Your Twenties and Thirties” and blogs “A Chronic Dose.” She’s a chronic illness patient advocate, a gifted and savvy writer and a good kid; the kind of dame you just want to sit down and have coffee with.

Not only does she contend with hypothyroidism, she has other chronic illnesses, rare illnesses. Laurie deals with her illnesses graciously and frankly; irreverently and humorously; diplomatically and wake-the-fuck-edly. We love this about her, of course. She’s so very Dear Thyroid.

In her Thyoliday Blues and Truths post, Laurie talks about her chronic illnesses and how it’s amended her experience of the holidays and her daily life.

Please check her out, she’s quite amazing, approachable and super cool. We think you’ll adore her as much as we do!

    Great post Laurie! You certainly handle more than most (even thyroid patients) with a lot of class. More than me, for instance, and I am not dealing with half of what you have! You seem like an upbeat, positive person and I applaud you for that!
