My Story

Bluebird Thriving is my story of learning to live with and treat thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, severe gluten intolerance, estrogen dominance and infertility.

My name is Robin and I’m glad you found me! I was diagnosed in my mid-thirties with thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, gluten intolerance and estrogen dominance.  After suffering three miscarriages and no living children (including twin boys in February 2012), I decided to document my story from the very beginning so that I can track my treatment and hopefully see progress. 

While mine is a story that begins with confusion, grief and exhaustion, my hope is that it will end as a story of strength, patience and joy.

It is a difficult story for me to tell as I share my discovery of how deeply my health issues have affected me and how unexplainably hopeless I felt for a long time. If you know me, some things may surprise you. If you don’t know me but found this blog because you are searching to better understand “unexplained infertility”, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, natural treatment and how to move on with your life, please stay. I hope that you too will find encouragement and hope.

I invite you to follow my journey.

  1. Hi!! Im from México and i found your blog… i cant tell you how much i relate to your story… im 35 and i´ve had two miscarriages, one on 2011 and one on 2012 both before 7 weeks..I´m hypo too and at that time i was taking synthroid wich apparently was not working (or the dose was wrong) since on both miscarriages my thyroid labs showed i was still hypo…..I spent last year trying to heal my body with a gluten sugar dairy free diet… no fast food etc…. On september i was switch to nature thyroid (2 grains) and finally my numbers appear to be good… even though i still feel tired and have a lot of symptoms (also i have digestive ones… day and night acid reflux for starters)…My doc sent me to have the saliva test to check my cortisol and in two weeks i will have a hormonal test just to check the other hormones… i feel way better but some symptoms are just still there… im soooo afraid to try again for pregnancy.. anyway i just wanted to let you know you are not alone in your journey!!! Sometimes i feel for my husband… he just has to cope with so much!!!! My best wishes to you!!

    • Ale, thank you for sharing your story it is good for me to know I am not alone and I appreciate it so much. I am so sorry for your losses. I am glad to hear you are responding well to treatment and that your Doctor is covering all the bases. Yes, trying again is on my mind a lot. The risk is so great I can talk myself out of it pretty quickly if I let myself. I am just trying to focus on healing and hope that it will be clear or not whether having a child biologically is possible for us.
      Bless our husbands, it’s hard on them too. Please keep in touch, Ale.

      • Ale I have had significant improvement with my symptoms, that is undeniable, but every day is different and it’s hard to know how I will feel day to day. Monday I was a zombie, I felt lethargic, achey and couldn’t focus but since then I have noticed good energy, clear mind, etc. if you are on Facebook look for the group ” Thyroid Sexy” a lot of great resources and support there!

  2. Hi Robin!! Thanks for your post!! I feel the the same way! Everyday is different! No question! I´ll keep in touch and please do so!
    Hopefully this journey wont be that long…!
    Blessings,
    Ale
