Married to Hashimoto's: A Husband's Confession - Where I Blew It

So often I’ve thought about doing a poll at Hypothyroid Mom, a poll to see how many people with thyroid disease are struggling with issues in their personal relationships.

I haven’t done the poll because…the truth…I fear that the percentage would be even higher than I imagine.
