Has your friend, family member, spouse, partner or someone else you know been diagnosed with hypothyroidism? (also known as underactive thyroid disease.)
Has it affected your relationship?
Frustrated that there isn’t enough resources and information out there for the loved ones of those with hypothyroidism, Rachel Hill of The Invisible Hypothyroidism began writing articles on her website for them, before also writing a dedicated book with her husband.
The first resource for friends, family and other loved ones of thyroid patients, this book is a comprehensive and much-needed tool which compiles all the information you need in order to ensure your relationship doesn’t suffer at the hands of this ‘invisible illness’.
A book written by award-winning thyroid patient advocate Rachel Hill, founder of The Invisible Hypothyroidism and her husband and longterm partner Adam Gask, it provides both perspectives of a thyroid condition diagnosis: the patient and their loved one.
Included in You, Me and Hypothyroidism:
- Easy to understand information on what hypothyroidism is and how it affects your spouse, friend or family member
- Ways in which you can best support the person you know with hypothyroidism to get them back to good health
- Information and practical advice on fertility issues, mental health, changes in sex drive, managing social events, dietary changes, housework and more, when your loved one has hypothyroidism
- Support for your own mental health and wellbeing while supporting someone else
- A list of resources (websites, books) for further reading
Although hypothyroidism can certainly feel like an unwelcome third wheel in a relationship, it needn’t be forever. Learn not only how to overcome this change to both of your lives, but also how it can instead strengthen your relationship.
This book will help save relationships as it guides more people towards thriving through mutual understanding of the condition, whether you’re a romantic partner, family member, friend, a work colleague, parent or someone else.
“Rachel excels at making thyroid disease approachable – cutting through medical terminology and meeting us where we are. Her first book is THE guidebook to living with hypothyroidism; and this follow-up, with husband Adam, picks up right where Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate left off. How do we approach our loved ones and teach them not only to assist in advocating for us, but also to understand our symptoms? Here, Rachel and Adam provide an insightful, very human map of survival – and remind us that we are, as ever, never alone.” – Lauren Freedman, Host & Founder of Uninvisible Pod
“Gask’s genuine testimony is paired with inspiring words that are sure to provide motivation and perspective that can help thyroid patients and their partners make it through the most challenging of times.” – The National Academy of Hypothyroidism
“You, Me and Hypothyroidism can help bridge barriers to communication and help you support those in your life who struggle with hypothyroidism. I ultimately hope everyone hears about and reads this essential book to greatly improve the quality of life for all those who struggle with hypothyroidism!” – Zana Carver, Thyroid Code
