Do you ever have a day that you just feel crap? You don't know what's wrong but you feel run down, burnt out and that you really just want to phone in sick and hide under your duvet watching Netflix? I know how you feel. Most of my teenage years were spent like that (although Netflix wasn't around back then). I felt exhausted ALL OF THE TIME. Not just on the odd day. I used to lie in my bed in the morning after my alarm had gone off, telling my body to move and get out of bed and into the shower, but my body just lay there. I just thought this was normal. I thought every teenager had a mind body disconnect and that they struggled to get out of bed in the morning. Little did I realise that being a lazy teenager that just didn't want to get out of bed and what I went through every morning were two totally different things.
But I have something that they don't. I have Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. Bit of a mouthful, but it basically means that my immune system has attacked my thyroid gland, which is the control centre for every chemical process in the body. When it doesn't work properly, everything slows down massively. So no wonder I felt like everyone else was functioning at the speed of light and I was barely crawling along at tortoise pace.
SO that was my life. I thought it was normal as I didn't know any different, but NOW I DO! I took ownership of my health, my Hashi's and my life and now I help others to do the same. I specialise in gut issues and brain fog, as these are found in almost every autoimmune condition out there (of which there are many), but they also affect people that don't have immune issues. I suffered greatly from both of these (more on these in later posts) and I don't want anyone to go through what I went through. So now as an Autoimmune Warrior turned Health Coach, I look at how simple, easy steps can be taken every day to make your health and your life better.
