@YodatI Can’t really think of a thyrant right now. Maybe that is my,  thyrant!????

@EAWake,  I feel another bout of frozen shoulder coming up! Leave me alone! 4th one and I’m 38!


Regina Cintron, Dear thyroid: Thanks for not making me sleepy at 1:00 for the first time in months but did it have to be 1:00 A.M.??!! Are ya serious???

Leslie Freeman Just waiting to see if I sneeze correctly and my thyroid (the part my body hasn’t killed off yet) decides to work for a few minutes if my medicine will push me into the “hyper” zone so I can get all the things done that needed to be done days ago!! ,  Thyranty enough??

Kathleen Taylor It’s going to take me a while to get over my thyappointing first ever visit with the endocrinologist. Hmm, what did I learn there? Well, I’m fat and I need to sleep. And, there’s no exploring anything. So, lose weight and oh, taking a sleeping pill. Imagine that! And, I paid to hear that, too! I’ll be under the bed for a few days, but; I’ll be back.

Michelle Farrell Well, my thyrant is that my thyroid is settling back to normal! Dropped my doses significantly (for Grave’s Disease – Methimazole) and my labs are still at normal for the 2nd month! Remission?? Not technically, as I’m still on meds, but my body state is 100% at normal for 2 months straight!! Now, if I can just get through my Master’s Thesis without stressing too much (and bringing evil Grave’s out of remission) I should be FINE!!! AND AVOID RAI, which I insist on preventing!

Billie Jean Doty How’s this for absurdity?! I go BACK to the doc for my routine thyroid blood work and I’m feeling like C.R.A.P.   I tell the doc I must be hypo again—labs show I’m way HYPER–explain to me, Sherlock, why I awake every a.m. with swollen eyelids and I constantly feel like I have a golf ball in my throat and I get hoarse every night for the past 3 weeks and I’m retaining fluid but my Synthroid dose is lowered because of the freaking numbers.   I’m looking for a medieval book on potion making so I might be able to concoct my own formula for thyroid treatment by using the eye of a newt.

Kairol Rosenthal Thyroid cancer. Low grade fevers. Sore salivary glands. Bitch, bitch, bitch. Counting the hours ‘till I cross enough off of my to-do list and can cuddle up with my dog and watch trashy TV!

Robyn Davis Hahn Lying in bed because I have no energy vs. lying in bed because my heart rate is sky high; either way, F-you thyroid.

Diane Fama No I don’t have a thyroid but I have Hashi’s and I know I am having a flare up because my tongue tastes funny – my nose is stuffy – my heart is racing and I am looking 5 months pregnant again.   Doesn’t help that there is no Armour anywhere in the world – so I had to get the dreaded Syncrap – but this new doc also gave me Cytomel so maybe there is a rainbow at the of this thyrant- I start tomorrow so I will keep you updated – and I know I went so off track – see what I mean dam you thyroid.

Diane Fama UPDATE – a few short hours – could it be? I am afraid to say it cause it might not be true.   I got up and I had that foggy pressure joint pain just like every other morning, I laid there contemplating my day – my daughters leaving for college – can I get thru this foggy headed day – then I remembered the new medicine – I took my HC as usual – I got,  my pill cutter since my Cytomel dosage is 25 mg split in 2 and I cut the pill – I put it in my mouth and swallowed. ,  3 hours later – I realized no head pressure and my stomach has not swelled as it usually does.   Could this be the start of a long love affair?

Gaye Durst Well let’s see… it is 64 degrees and I feel as if it is 90 and I feel as if my heart is going to leap outta my chest and gee, it is only four hours into my day!

Rebekah McAlinden Right now, it’s 2:45 AM, thyroid and I can’t sleep. Damn you. Also noticed my hair starting to fall out in lovely, attractive clumps. Exactly what every 17-year-old desires, no?


Cyndi Woodruff :,  What’s up with the MAJOR palpitations I’m having the past few days?,   My hair is clogging drains, I have hardly any eyelashes left, NOT losing weight, keep gaining. ,  Bloodwork looks fine. Is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life?? That I only feel “decent” for a couple of weeks or months at a time and then the shit starts all over? And I hate the hell it has created with my personal life. Fuck. Yep, in a mood.

    Regina – I know the feeling. I usually get way exhausted during the day but last night I was up until 4 AM. Ridiculous.
