I have faith

I am not 100% and most likely will never be. Life without a thyroid is a complex dance. You learn to live with the low energy, brain fog and the sore body. You learn to let go of the remarks of “you don’t look sick” and “but you didn’t have a bad cancer” You just have to say “Damn it, I’m still here and I’m still me. I will live my life to the fullest that I am able with my heart opened to love and happiness!”
