I am a married mother of one; part-time stay at home mom and part time marriage and family therapist. I gave birth to my beautiful boy in April of 2012; shortly after I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called hashimoto’s thyroiditis (a disorder that attacks and eventually kills my thyroid). After reading everything I could get my hands on, I came across a lot of horrifying and discouraging stories. After feeling angry (why me!?) and sad (why me?!), I sprung into acceptance and then action mode. I decided, why not me! I’ve completely changed my lifestyle and want to share a POSITIVE story for those diagnosed with this condition.
