We share a very similar story, I feel like it was years before I knew the real damage that being abandon had done. Even though my mother was diagnosed shortly after I was born I wasn’t diagnosed until I was almost 7. It has been a constant struggle and now that I have just turned 30 I think I’ve finally (fingers crossed) learned how to live a healthy happy life without it.
I just want to let you know you’re not alone since it seems pretty rare to have thyroid disorders from birth.
Chin up; you’re a stronger girl because of it.
