My name is Jessica I am 31 I have been fighting a thyroid disorder known as Hashimotos thyroiditis for over 5 years. It is frustrating and scary to know the amount of unknown when it comes to this illness. Doctors stick their head in old books and treat your illness and not your symptoms problem is everyone with this illness is different. I have been trying for a baby for 4 years.... I have no children of my own it has set in I may never have one. But I have a beautiful step daughter I love with all my heart. I strive for a better tomorrow for her and my husband. I will not be controlled by my illness; though I will have it the rest of my life it will not define me. We are STRONGER than we think we are we know this when all we have left is our strength.
