ok, so i absolutely love surfing - hence my username! and the weathers getting warmer and there was an easterly wind today creating the best surf i've seen this spring in south of England, so i rushed to beach with my cousin and put my wet suit on and OMG! i couldn't do the wetsuit up around my neck cos it's tight and pressing on my nodules and making me cough and uncomfortable!
i didn't let it beat me though,i love surfing too much! i had to leave the zip half undone so it's loose around my neck and my cousin has to tie a bit of string around it to hold it in place! only trouble was that every time i came off the board i had a gush of very cold water down the back of my suit as i've left it loose around the neck so it's not water tight! had about 30 mins of excellent surf and then had to come in as too cold and uncomfortable!
decision made, if my thyroid is affecting my surfing it has definately got to come out! (which it is, thank god)
just hope it doesn't put me out of action for too long so i can get back in there :)
