Here at HyperHypoMama we understand how difficult it is live with chronic illness. The good days tend to be far and few in-between. “Fake it till you make it” becomes the motto of most living with any chronic illness. My name is Rachel and I have thyroid disease…both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. I like to keep things interesting so I switch back and forth between the two just when I start to get a hang of this crazy chronic illness thing. Since like can’t just I decided it is time to take back some control of my life. I am determined to thrive in spite of my chronic illness. This is where things get tricky. How do you thrive when you have a chronic illness and so far there is nothing modern medicine can do for you (those are the words of several Endocrinologists)? So, when things get tricky we get creative. My dream for HyperHypoMama is to inspire others with chronic illness to thrive creatively. This blog isn’t just about health. It’s about all things life, and ways to make life just a little bit easier when you have a chronic illness. It’s about being married, raising a family, cooking dinner, managing a house, working, going to school, traveling, and so on…all with a chronic disease.
Take a look around. Maybe you will find something the resonates with you. Maybe you find that you are not in this along. I hope that what ever you find encourages you to stay, and share.
