Removed my bandage today and saw my battle wound for the first time, and I’d say it’s healing up nicely! Tomorrow will be one week post op! 💙🦋#thyroidectomy #lifeafterthyroidectomy #thyroidectomyscar

Dealing with brain fog and mental fatigue?
.
.
.
You wouldn’t be the only one as this brain based fatigue is rife amongst people with Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism.
_
Between this and the physical fatigue that accompanies it, these are the greatest complaints I hear from women because it really derails their life. No energy = a shitty life.
_
This is a clip from a series I did on the systemic impact of Hashimoto’s on the body because BELIEVE IT OR NOT, autoimmune thyroiditis affects everything. Not just your thyroid.
_
Doctor didn’t tell you that one, huh?
_
And if the thyroid isn’t working neither is your brain along with everything else illustrated behind me. (Catch that whole discussion in my Hashimoto’s Academy FB group. See link in bio).
_
People love talking about a leaky gut but it’s a bit misperception to think that the gut is the only issue here. If anything, it just promotes further havoc like a leaky brain, which can occur independent of any gut issues.
_
As long as there’s antigenic triggers (lyme disease, mold, metals, infections, etc), the risk for and persistence of brain fog, forgetfulness, fatigue from reading, etc will remain high.
_
Thyroid medications often help a bit, but there’s a reason why those symptoms are still there. It all just delineates how convoluted the diseases is, so if we truly want to reclaim our energy again and remember people names again (or keep our job), we need to dig deeper than what the doctor is gonna do for you.
_
In my experience, once we completely resolve these underlying triggers the brain fatigue vanishes and you’re astonished to feel like a real human again.

WARNING! GRAPHIC CONTENT IF YOU SWIPE! Surgery went well today 👍🏼. My throat feels better already! It’s not getting squeezed to death. Doc said it was all around my windpipe and up my neck. Pic with measurement to follow. My smile in the first pic? That’s being able to breathe and Norco - haha. I didn’t get a good pic of the drain tube that’s sticking out of my neck, sorry! #thyroidectomy #surgeryphoto #painmeds #timetorest

I never thought I would see the other side of what scared me the most! 🦋💙 I hope I can inspire at least one person who is going through the same as me feeling like there is no hope! I hope once my work is viewed, they see a seen of positivity!

Thank you @bluelagoonimages for helping me capture my work and everyone else for there support as I worked on this project! 💙🦋

Aunque no tengo la misma voz, sé que tu corazón sabe que soy yo.
Anhelo poder cargarte amor mío.
The day we met,
Frozen I held my breath
Right from the start
I knew that I'd found a home for my heart
Beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has…#alphawoman #entrepreneurlifestyle #thyroidectomy #enpowerment #liberty #pregnant #premature #fashionmom #newmom #thebestattitude #selfsteem #instagood #babygirl #incondicionallove

I managed 3miles and it took 30mins, which for a post op ‘recovery style’ run, I think is pretty damn good!
My scar has been slightly irritated by the freezing cold wind and possible pounding on the ground (my own fault as I don’t like it covered as it causes irritation!) Disney Half Marathon we’re coming for you!

Happy to have gotten in a run despite having a sick kiddo at home. The upside is that he’s been successfully learning how to blow his nose today #lifeskills . My glutes are quite sore. I find it kind of funny, because the instructor in the class I took yesterday had me correct my single leg bridge move so I wasn’t going all the way to the ground. Still feeling it! Pretty bummed that this instructor is moving away. Her classes are intense and there’s a dedicated group that attends. 🤞that the new instructor brings the same kind of energy. Happy Tuesday! #motherrunner #thesemotherscanrun #shortrun #endorphinsmakeyouhappy #fitnessjourney #thyroidectomy

We started the thankful tree yesterday as we lead up into thanksgiving. This week is a slower #homeschool week. We’re just focusing on the holiday... slowing down a bit, and just enjoying time. I got this thankful tree, Turkey tic-tac-toe, and thanksgiving bingo cards @target 🙌🏻 •

What are you thankful for this week?? Are you taking some time to breathe? ((My Apple Watch reminds me often to stop and breathe 😏)) Like you don’t know my life watch 😝 •

We spend SO MUCH of our time dwelling on the things we DON'T want to happen. Ever notice how often you find yourself say, "I knew I was going to drop that!" Notice how it's usually the things you don't want to happen though?

Dwell on what you want to happen. Your weight, your health, your body and your quality of life are no different. New Years goals/resolutions/intentions are great until you lose sight of the big picture of what you want. You slip on the banana peel of life's natural setbacks and give up. That's why over 90% of the goals you set in January never get achieved. You are building a new habit and expect results instantly and constantly. The dwelling of "why is this going wrong" or "why can't I do that" eats your inspiration. Tell that negative dwelling hungry hungry hippo to take a seat. Sure, hiccups happen. People get offended. Scales don't move. People don't change. We fall on our face. But what's important is that YOU stay on YOUR course. And you don't ever lose sight of what you want. Why wait until January, start now! I would love to get you started. #weightlosssupport #myweightlossjourney #thyroidectomy #pregnancyaftervsg #thyroidproblems #pregnancyaftervsg #newmom #goals #determined #goodbyefat

My alarm went off at 4:15 for my 5AM workout and i thought about hitting snooze. So thankful i didn’t.
———
💪🏼 5years ago, unforeseen complications during my surgery and treatments for #thyroidcancer left me incapable of swallowing food and water and easy breathing. This morning i thought about rolling over and going back to bed, and then I remembered to be thankful to be able to do it.
What’s your why?

Well it’s all over now and I am waiting to go home. My calcium levels are a bit low so I have to take calcium supplements for a bit. Yesterday was rough. Talking was very painful and I tried to use my own “sign language” to communicate lol. Today I am just very sore but ready to get out of here! #thyroidproblems #thyroidectomy

⭐ О шве #послетиреоидектомии и иньекции кортикостероида.На фото сделанном мною сегодня утром,когда и поступил вопрос о шве и я решила рассказать заново о своём опыте) видно что спустя 1,5года после операции по удалению щитовидной железы -шов у меня практически незаметен.я немного подконтрастировала фото-но его все равно практически не видно.
После операции у меня стоял дренаж(трубочка с банкой-гормошкой)-иногда он не ставится.Рана была зашита.Дренаж сняли через сутки.Швы-на пятый день(я ездила на снятие уже из дома).Стояла повязка пластырь.Постепенно стала образовываться корочка-и когда она отвалилась(самостоятельно) и под ней обнаружился красный рубец-я начала его обрабатывать гелем Дерматикс.Это силиконовый гель-препарат передовой и недешевый -около 3т.р Одного маленького тюбика мне хватило на период 4месяца-далее он был мне не нужен.
Я втирала его массажными движениями в шов по утрам и вечерам.По началу это было делать нелегко-очень чувствительно и неприятно-но мне настоятельно советовал хирург прямо массажными движениями-для того что бы не формировалась спайка.Но спайка все же образовалась с трахеей- и при глотании заметно.Теперь эта спаянность ощущается лишь при волнении когда немного сжимает горло.На период 4месяца после операции я посетила хирурга на осмотр и моя врач осталась очень довольна швом,но сказала ⤵⤵

Tomorrow’s the big day! I’m getting my thyroid taken out! #thyroidectomy

🦋The “sick” part of Sick&Pretty🦋 Last night I did something that I rarely do. I touched my neck and chest, where my scar is. Where I found the lumps that made me more afraid than ever. To be honest, avoiding that part of my body didn’t start with the surgery or having “the good cancer.” But years prior. I always saw it as a source of being vulnerable and feeling swollen nodes that would come and go. Reminding me I wasn’t like most people. Then the thyroidectomy happened. And I treated that area like it was toxic, barely putting sunscreen or skincare there. Just looking at it made me feel weaker.
_
I’m not ashamed of the scar or my body. I’m proud of it. But the act of touching it makes it very real. I realize I had it good compared to what some people go through. Even my incision site looks great because I had an amazing doctor.So this isn’t a pity post. It’s a “just f’ing face those fears and it’s ok to be vulnerable or weak sometimes” post. A “celebrate small victories” post. It’s also a “bring your skincare, especially your sunscreen, down on your neck and chest because it shows aging” post lol! 🌞
_
I look at the scar everyday and I see a reminder of how strong I am. And how beautiful we all are, particularly because of our battle wounds. It means we are still winning. And fighting. And loving ourselves and others.
_
This post probably belongs on a blog (wink, wink😉) and I promise it will be soon. If you are going through thyroid cancer or something like it, and want to ask me questions. Please do. I’ll try my best to help. .

QUICK REVIEW: I love @belifusa The True Cream Moisture Bomb! It’s getting cooooold on the East Coast and this is saving my poor skin. Been a fav for years now. Also, bring your skincare all the way down to your chest. Including sunscreen ladies and gentlemen!!! 👏👏👏👏 ____________

Repost from @official_cancerbro
My thyroid cancer story. Sadly it's still ongoing and I may have to get the other half of my thyroid removed due to growing lymphnodes. But I'm trying to keep strong and get on with life until I know for sure 🤞

Yesterday I was struggling and then cancerbro released my story and I decided to be brave and share it on my Facebook and I'm so glad I did because I received so many lovely messages from people and it has really helped me to feel more positive today. So thank you @official_cancerbro and everyone who sent me lovely messages! I can do this 💪🤞

I love this. Stay positive friends ❤️ .

Flashback to the day after I had my thyroidectomy when I was adamant about being able to continue advocating so "snuck" out for a walk and continued business as usual 😂😂 Contrary to what some might think, healthcare and advocacy don't have days off 🙏☝💜💙💚💛❤️

Crazy the challenges I faced physically over the last year. Everyday I thank God for a new day. To be able to breath and eat without any issues again. Most people don't even think about it. But when you are faced with difficulties doing something so basic and then you are finally able to do it again, you become aware of how lucky you are.
