Dr. Wright explains how a person with a thyroid problem can ask for support without sounding like a whiner.
First of all, don’t feel guilty. We whine when we give ourselves blame, shame, and guilt. So first of all, have compassion for yourself that you are legitimately entitled to a certain amount of support. So, by being authentic and being direct, you will not be a whiner.
