And here is a thing that I learned way later in my life.
For every human being, it is ok to be sad, angry and upset.
There has been this illusional digital life that mainly shows all people having great lives and having fun in social media.
What has happened that a toxic positivity has came out.
In order to have balance, there should be also the other side, the negative side.
And being sad, is a part of it.
It should not be hidden, or trying to label it as depression.
I do think, there has also been too many push on labeling having bad times as depression, where it saddness has been ok to have.
As a person with Hashimoto, I, and probably most of people deal with our roallercoaster of emotions and thoughts and worries about our state.
It does have bring up the question, am I good enough?
And there have been sad moments because a flare up just appear, and I do felt like, oh not again. And we slow down for a second, heal up and keep walking.
In this path, and probably for every person, not just autoimmune, it should be given the time to be sad, to be angry and to be upset.
Doing the right healing work will cheer up the person eventually, and bring him back on track.
It is a matter of time.
