“You see this little purple pill?? This is the pill that helps keep me and my unborn son alive. As raw as it sounds .. it is very much true.
‼️Levothyroxine : is a thyroid medicine that replaces a hormone normally produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body’s energy and metabolism. This pill is given when your thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. It is used to treat hypothyroidism and to treat or prevent goiters which can be caused by hormone imbalances, radiation treatment, surgery, or CANCER.
Since I had half of my thyroid removed due to cancer, my thyroid is not producing enough hormone like it should.
My baby depends on my body producing hormone for his brain development ,nervous system and his survival. So without this pill I can lose my baby boy. As for me, without this pill I am not myself. After the removal of half my thyroid I experienced anxiety , depression and much more. It wasn’t till I got the right dosage of this pill was when I started to feel like me again. Do I like taking a pill every morning? NO. But I will do whatever it takes to keep us healthy and alive ! God willing one day I will be healthy enough to toss these pills in the trash but as of now this is my life.
I share this not for you to feel bad for me but to raise awareness. Just because your cancer is gone doesn’t mean life is normal again. It means now you have to continue to fight for your life & for your cancer not to come back.
Thyroid Cancer is real and it is scary. Cases are getting higher every year. It is so important to go to your yearly checkups and get your neck checked!”
