Near the end of 2021, I woke up surrounded by emergency services.

I had been feeling terrible for some time but it was just put down to exhaustion from depression. I have a condition called Graves’ disease I’ve been battling behind the scenes. A lot of people have scratched their heads at this diagnosis. It’s an autoimmune disease that damages the thyroid gland and causes the thyroid to become overactive. This is followed by a fast heart rate/palpitations, low moods and many other symptoms.

I want to raise more awareness and raise money for the much-needed support of people battling thyroid conditions.
