... After being diagnosed hypothyroid, I still didn't feel well. I had absolutely no idea what a thyroid was, or where it was located. I kept developing symptoms that mystified my doctor and me. The endocrinologist said the symptoms would calm down in a few months. So I waited. And I still didn't feel well. So I read, and got a computer, and surfed the web. And I found out that things like hair falling out, and weird periods, and difficulty losing weight, and carpal tunnel syndrome, and feeling depressed were all utterly "normal" symptoms of hypothyroidism. It was a revelation.
For five years, I've studied as much as I can about thyroid disease and hypothyroidism, searched for information on conventional and alternative ways to diagnose and treat hypothyroidism. I've assembled much of a lot of my information into a thyroid disease website and a newsletter, called Sticking Out Our Necks, offering the latest thyroid-related news on health, drugs, treatments, tests, companies, and alternative therapies for hypothyroidism and its symptoms. I've answered thousands of emails from people with hypothyroidism around the world. People write daily, pouring out their hearts, sharing the same concerns and problems. Something is wrong, and someone needs to do something about it. That's why I wrote this book.
