I am very excited to share with you a revolution disguised as a website called ThryoidChange. ThyroidChange has a mission to unite patients, doctors, bloggers, organizations, and individuals globally to share resources and to improve thyroid disease diagnosis and treatment. What a beautiful goal! They have already compiled an extensive list of people in the thyroid health community, as well as links to websites and forums in many countries. The ThyroidChange site is a wealth of information and a great place to meet others in the thyroid world.

ThyroidChange has a petition to sign which calls for better care from endocrinologists. Specifically, the petition asks for a more thorough testing procedure to determine thyroid disease, a broader choice of treatments and for doctors to stay up-to-date on current research. At the time of this writing the petition already has over 4200 signatures. Click here to read the complete petition and sign to support this important cause.

A big thank you to Michelle Bickford and Denise Rodriguez for bringing together so many people with the goal of optimal care for thyroid patients.

If YOU would like to join this “worldwide thyroid support network” (LOVE that!), email thyroidchange@gmail.com with the subject line MEMBER.

    I am happy you have found them! I consider Michelle (though we have never met) a friend. She could literally come in my house and eat up all my food if she wanted, that’s how much of a blessing I feel like she has been along this journey. There are times when no one understands what we are going through. It’s nice to see those signatures boldly saying “we” are NOT alone. We are not crazy. We deserve better.

    I hope you are well.

    I love this and am so sorry I did not comment sooner! I have been “ThyroidChange crazy.” Only a few weeks after this was first written and we now are a few signatures from 5000! Crazy, right?!?!?! It is so exciting that we are really coming together for change! This is a labor of love for Denise & I and every one who has supported us a long the way including you Mikelle & Andrea!

    ANDREA: I feel the same way. I know this sounds silly, but the moment I saw your picture and heard your story, I related. We are both in the trenches of motherhood (gotta love the first few years) while struggling with thyroid issues. It is so hard to have an idea of the mother you want to be, but struggle to be that person thanks to thyroid disease. Oh well, that is why I am trying to embrace the flawed Mommy that is… she ain’t half bad 😉
