Twenty-Sixth Entry: Thyroid Literary Contest – Three Words of Encouragement
When thinking of four words that are meaningful for dealing with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, I think of words that empower me to be well by taking proactive measures for my health. How to achieve empowerment is up to each individual, but to truly be empowered and overcome thyroid issues I must Absorb all the knowledge available to me by constantly researching my health and changes in treatment. I must Advocate for my own health by questioning and respectfully challenging some of my physician’s treatments, even if it means I find a new doctor. I must be Active in all that I do; whether it’s exercise, diet, or research, thyroid patients cannot be passive about any portion of their health. I will Achieve optimum health by using all the resources available to me.
Absorb, Advocate, Active, and Achieve – – four words for reaching my goals of overcoming Hashimoto’s and participating in my life!
