Having any Thyroid condition typically implies a slew of mental and other health implications that ultimately impact both quality of life and literal physical health. In this November's blog piece, I will be exploring the ways in which mental health impacts alongside Thyroid illnesses impact men.
As a man going into my eighth year of having Hashimoto’s, I have often found myself fighting from the very lowest ground level to gain some form of understanding and empathy. Speaking for myself, I don’t want to be victimised or made to feel inadequate, faulty or to have rogue sympathy lobbed at me. Instead, I yearn for simple understanding for men like me who have faced all manner of mental health suffering as a result of a condition that can arise in anyone at any given time.
