Imagine not being so tired that you cannot even take care of he most basic tasks while sometimes been too tired to even fall asleep.

The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland in your neck. It makes two hormones that are secreted into the blood: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones are necessary for all the cells in your body to work normally.

TOO MUCH and you are one of the fastest robots in town (trust me! I have been there, still bare the reputation) TOO LITTLE and "what is your name again? (at some point my brain became so severe, I forgot my father's first name and had to call my sister to remind me. :-)

Thyroid eye disease (TED) is an eye condition that causes the muscles and soft tissues in and around your eye socket to swell. TED usually happens when you have a problem with your thyroid gland.  The most common way TED affects the eyes is by causing symptoms of dry eye - watering, grittiness, and soreness. You may also find that bright lights are uncomfortable

The first time I heard about TED (thyroid Eye Disease), it was too late for me! the wonder years had gone and while the dust settled, my ashes were still burning the rest of me. While in the grinder, I was too lost for years to see the light at the end of the tunnel, more particularly, following a mis-diagnosed and medical mistake on the back of a bad Thyrotoxicosis (an excess of thyroid hormone in the body) .

All along these long last 2 decades, I burried myself into over working feeling guilty I could barely exist some days  Thyrotoxicosis
