This is my personal story regarding symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for autoimmune hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and other metabolic-related conditions that developed co-morbid to my thyroid disease. I also share information regarding my symptom-struggles including emotional aspects and about my difficulties in finding a doctor experienced in treating thyroid disease with related conditions attached to it. I also include a chapter about my reason for becoming a Thyroid Patient Advocate and about the growing importance for public education on thyroid diseases. It is my hope that my story will inspire other patients to become proactive in obtaining quality care for their health disorders and to partner with their doctors to achieve this. I also hope this book will serve to inspire patients with difficult thyroid disease cases, to achieve coping skills for gaining a better quality-of-life. This book is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subject. Please note the number of pages listed and for an approximate word-count, see the ebook version description for this same title (Thank You - the Author). CONTENTS (5 Chapters - approx. 6,663 words in length): CHAPTER ONE: My Thyroid Story in a Nutshell CHAPTER TWO: The Association of Epstein–Barr Virus to Autoimmune Thyroid Disease CHAPTER THREE: Emotional aspects I’ve experienced with my Health Disorders CHAPTER FOUR: My co-occurring (related) Conditions CHAPTER FIVE: Why I became a Thyroid Patient AdvocateAbout the Author:
In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis). A common heart murmur I was diagnosed with in my teens called "Mitral Valve Prolapse", also worsened in severity of symptoms, with the development of these other health disorders. My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders. I completed theology studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I received Editor's Choice Awards for my articles on health subjects.
