About three years ago I started to lose a lot of weight without any kind of diet. I was worried because I was losing weight and it was coming off really fast. I decided to make an appointment with my doctor so he could check all of my blood work and tell me if I had some sort of disease. I had my blood work done and was told that I had hyperthyroidism. I had to start taking a medication and go on a hyperthyroidism diet that was going to help me gain a lot of the weight that I was starting to lose. I started to look very sick. People started to ask me if I had cancer or some other type of disease. I could not believe that people could be so cruel to me due to my weight loss.
