About Me: Female, 57, Melbourne, Australia, member since Oct 2012
I work for the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency as an investigating officer and I spend my life reading about people's health. That said, my health has seen some challenges over the past 18 months: I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis in August
[More] 2011 and have been on the same journey as many others with medication/weight etc. I had a hysterectomy in June 2012 and was hospitalised with supraglottis (throat infection) in September 2012 which was really scary. I am interested in reading other people's stories particularly in relation to thyroid disease.
