Gland We Thynd A Way To Work Together?
You have brought so much sadness into my life. First, you appeared out of nowhere with your hyperactivity and swift shift to hypoactivity. No one wanted to name you as a disease, and I was left wondering what had happened. Then, you decided to show your hypo ways after my son was born. But, as quickly as you appeared, you disappeared and I was again left to think that you weren’t much of a threat.
Instead, for four years, I was agonized by the depression you brought. How could I be my enthusiastic self while also feeling so very low on other days? You made me doubt myself and my ability to just get over it… Then in November 2008, you decided to show yourself in my blood test results again. Thankfully, those very low feelings have never returned. However, you find other ways to bring me sadness. You refused to show yourself in the standard antibodies that would give me a diagnosis. You’re wrecking havoc with my eyes and you are a source of blame for any doctor who can’t figure out what is wrong with me. If these other problems are your fault, why? Why do this to my body?
Thyroid, I want to live. I want to live with joy and happiness. You do your best to take any signs of happiness away from me. You’ve robbed me of many hopes and dreams. At this point, I can’t see an end to your antagonism. Please prove me wrong.
