Hi, and welcome to the Thyroidcafe. I saved you a seat by the fire. I’m Meghan, I have been fighting Hashimoto’s disease for over a decade. In that time, I have learned a lot about fighting the thyroid battle. Yet, I know enough to know there is more to learn. So I am excited to create this blog. This is where I can pass along my experience; we can create community and reach together towards a cure.
Who I am
I am Meghan. I fight every day to be the best thyroid warrior I can. My husband and I have four kids, three boys and a girl, however the king of our home is Cat, our aptly named cat. Our family lives in the Great White North, Canada. Where the maple syrup runs wild and so does the CBD oil! I became a Christian years ago and hold a most precious faith. But before that, I was diagnosed with a thyroid disease called Hashimoto’s disease. (a story for an upcoming post) and though I am far from perfect, I push on towards growing in my knowledge of this disease.
Why am I doing this?
Because I am passionate. About fighting thyroid problems, about learning more and about creating community. I do this because God has given me the gift of writing so I can help embolden and comfort those who are going through what I have. I am also excited to get to know more fellow warriors. One place where I have already found community is this Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/161220551400130/?ref=bookmarks. As we share knowledge and raise awareness of this disease, we can reach towards a cure.
So, what’s this blog about?
Firstly, Thyroidcafe is a warm space for us to be together. Because of that, I created various social media spaces, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Thyroidcafe-2312996449018883/, Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thethyroidcafe/?hl=en and Twitter https://twitter.com/thyroidcafe . Here I will offer more detailed information about each blog post and (duh!) pics of food. While solidarity is important, we also need more knowledge. So on this blog I will share some solutions I have found, websites, products and the advice of medical experts.
I am a fellow thyroid fighter. A passionate woman hoping to help grow community, knowledge, and ideally a cure for thyroid diseases. So grab a coffee and join me at the Thyroidcafe.
