Dr. Wright shares how a mother's thyroid condition affects the entire family.
Whenever one is subject to mood swings, overwhelmed with sense of loss and physiological changes that are unpredictable, mom is a pivotal point, and so her illness becomes systemic to the family.
One does not have a disease or illness by themselves, especially when you are pivotal to a family. So mom’s role radiates throughout the family and that’s why communication is so critical when dealing with any family with a mother’s illness because it affects each person differently, and we can’t be afraid of it.
