I suffered 12 grueling, fucked up years

Never relentlessly questioning as I should

Voice coming at you flustered, hushed tones

Instead of

Screaming in your face


But, you and the others

Laughed and dismissed me until I questioned my own sanity

Except for one; and, for you, I am indebted

(Bio) Keira 35 – year old Hashimoto patient and thyroid cancer survivor

    Our stories sound crazy similar. I can relate to everything you wrote. Simply put when they told me, “…you have Hashimoto’s…oh and cancer…”, part of me felt relieved. Finally, I had an answer, and proof it wasn’t all in my head.
