Dear Anastasia’s Thyroid: Part Two: Give A Girl A Break!
Now that we’ve successfully moved, I have a few requests for you. I don’t think it’s too much to ask, so I’ve compiled the following list with a few bulleted points. Could you PLEASE refrain from the following:, ,
- Spiking my body temperature so that instead of unpacking boxes, I have to sit on my only piece of constructed furniture, an IKEA Poang ottoman, with my face pressed up against a fan to keep from melting in a puddle on the floor in this NC heat. ,
- Fogging up my brain so much that I’ve actually found and paid for the items on my lengthy shopping list only to leave them on the end of the register, forgetting to put them in my reusable shopping bag way too many times. Was that fourth trip to Home Depot this week fun for you? Yeah, I didn’t think so. ,
- Lighting an unearthly fire of hunger in my belly that keeps me from going an 1.5 hours without a snack. I’m on a budget, thyroid, and all these granola bars and yogurt covered raisins are expensive! Yeesh. ,
- Stirring up this wacky sense of urgency in my nerves about everything from hanging my cork board to eating Indian buffet. IMEDIATELY. An urgency that is usually paired with such bad irritability, it would rival that of a toddler crashing from a massive jelly bean high.
I’m stopping at four because I don’t want to overwhelm youÃ¢â‚¬”heaven knows how easily you get overwhelmed! But just know, that you have a lot of shaping up to do, dear Thyroid.
