“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Through The Looking Glass – Lewis Carroll
I’m so excited today, because this morning I reduced my thyroid medication down to the lowest possible dose. Yiiippppeee!
Having suffered from M.E/CFS since I was 15 years old (that’s almost 2 decades – yep, I’m really that old) I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease (an autoimmune disease affecting the thyroid) in 2009.
A couple of years before this diagnosis, my health had deteriorated rapidly and it turns out that severe autoimmunity was the cause. I was eventually prescribed levothyroxine by an endocrinologist and, as the months and years passed and my severe symptoms persisted, the dose of my medication was increased several times to a very high level.
I was told that the autoimmune attack was killing off my thyroid and that, not only will I have to be on this medication for the rest of my life, but I’d have to increase the dose over time, as more of my thyroid is destroyed.
But, over the past year, I’ve been learning more about this illness and discovering natural ways to calm down the autoimmune attack. And with a huge helping hand from The Pollyanna Plan and bucket loads of law of attraction work, it seems that not only is the autoimmune attack abating, but against the odds, my thyroid seems to be healing itself. Yey!!!!
I regularly thank my thyroid and tell it what a wonderful job it is doing and how clever it is that it is healing so well. Sounds mad, I know, but it looks like it really appreciates the praise and encouragement!
After my last set of blood tests, my doctor said that I could put my thyroid medication down to the lowest possible dose, which I did this morning. It’s so exciting!
My dream is to be medication free by the end of the year. I believe I can do it….
Day 172, Reason 172: Today I am so very happy and grateful that my body is healing itself and I am able to reduce the dose of my thyroid medication.
