I was very honored to be asked to do a guest post for the Hypothyroid Mom. If you are not familiar with this wonderful website, it is an incredible resource for all those who suffer with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (the autoimmune disease that is the number one cause of hypothyroidism).
Anyway, before I had brain fog from Lyme disease, I had brain fog from Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. (Yes, it’s VERY foggy in here.) At one point I was even given ADD medication for my brain fog. That didn’t go so well. You can read my super-foggy story at the Hypothyroid Mom’s site.
Also, the Hashimoto’s Institute, an excellent and informative series of free (yay, free) online presentations about Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, is going on this week. There will be 28 presentations by top thyroid experts, and replays for each presentation. So far, I’m learning plenty (even with my brain fog), and it’s only day two.
