Who Needs a Prom Dress When You Have Thyroid Disease?
Now you see, this is just getting thydiculas. I wish you would just think about what you are doing for a second. This is only causing you pain by making my brain stay up all night, and now my immune system can’t fight off the back to school’ cold, because she is too busy dealing with you. My grandma has found the quote, “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,Ã¢â‚¬ and this is a great example of the thyation out there. We are joining together, you know that?
Even though I’m supposed to be some thoughtless teenager (which is why you choose to attack me), I have been gaining knowledge about your weaknesses, and so are the others. And I know I have to thank you for a lot: for keeping in check for the first 14 years of my life. So, what went wrong? I never meant to hurt you and neither did my immune system; it’s just confused (you know it didn’t do well in school). Maybe you could tutor it? This could be the start of a wonderful friendship. You know?
Now, looking back I am trying to remember the start of our “Relationship” you first showed yourself by way of a goiter and we thought it might just be an iodine deficiency, or something else. Then they had you sonogram-ed and they poked me with needles (I hate needles) and came to the conclusion that I had Hashimoto’s and that my immune system was bullying you (how awful. Did I mention I was picked on in junior high a lot? So I can tell you, thyroid that this is nothing compared to those three years) and to stay ahead of the crowd you decided to freak out! Which meant shrinking the space were oxygen, food, and speech pass though! Now I know it’s not your fault, but it could be. It’s probably half immune system and half yours (you probably provoked my immune system).
I wonder how long you are going to try and fight my immune system. Another year? Two? Fifty? I wish you would give up, or ask my immune system to; it just hangs up on me (how high school), can’t it just grow up, right? I know that this is the beginning but just so you know, I AM fighting you just as hard as you are fighting me, or maybe even harder, with the help of my new friends (Katie, Liz, and Bek) I will stop you. You know It’s true, because I am two steps ahead. And we will be seeing an endo soon, and they will be very helpful too. And we will gossip for hours behind your back and make jokes, just like how you and immune system do to me (I know you are thyimes) trying to bring me down. But you never know, you could be the victim here and I am sorry if you are but, I have to watch out for my self. Do you think goiter is behind it all?
May the best organism win (I’m bigger than you),
(Bio) I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s at 15, and now 17 and starting my senior year of high school. Even though I struggle, like most, I am still trying to be a normal teen. I am and writer and editor of my school paper. I hope someday to become an elementary school principle. I also hope for love this year, like most teenage girls, even though my weight changes as much as the shoes I wear. My greatest wish is to go though and entire day without a nap.
