Feb 2012 I was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder called Graves disease, which attacked my Thyroid causing over activity of the gland.
You can think of the thyroid as a central gear in a sophisticated engine. If the gear breaks, the entire engine goes down with it. My thyroid was broken and in Aug 2013 I went for surgery to have it removed. As a result of the surgery I am now required to keep my engine ticking over with the help of many tablets every day for the remainder of my life. Thyroid UK helps sufferers fight the system to get better treatment for the many people it affects. I too have had to fight in order to be me again, and get the treatment I require.
Tandem Parachute Jump
I’ll be strapped to someone I barely know who will throw us out of an aircraft door from over 2 and half miles up, sending us freefalling at a speed of 120mph through the clouds, before gliding back down to my apparently envious supporters (their words not mine!). Possibly the craziest thing I have done to date, and let’s face it those of you who know me know I’ve done some crazy stuff in my time. But hey, it’s another tick on the Bucket List.
