I was 19, always cheerful and full of life, nobody could tell I had a rough childhood. I had completed one year of engineering with unexpected good grades. I had a sensitive skin and it was another allergy attack, I was suffering from. With so many other important things to worry about, it no longer bothered me to go to college with a swollen face or completely covered with pink itchy rashes.
The doctor had recommended a simple blood test and I was expecting him to say something like 'Your Haemoglobin is low or build your immune system, eat more green' etc. But Life is a mystery, what to do we know !
I was asked to undergo few more tests before fasting and after fasting.
The Ugly Duckling was now a Beautiful swan. I will honestly admit I was basking in the glory of attention. I chose to always think of what God had given me, and ignore the pain and unfortunate incidents. I was enjoying my college days, even though home was hell, remember I had written about my abusive alcohol addicted uncle, he was still living with us.
Results came, Doctor announced I was having a thyroid gland disfunction. I was suffering from hypo-thyroidism.
I had heard this word for the first time, T for THYROID.
