We Are Teenagers. Please, Thyroid, Leave My Friend Alone
Dear Rebekah’s Thyroid,
I have had more than enough of you and your stupid ‘antics’. I would like you to stop your games and get back to doing your job properly now, okay? I’ve had enough of you making her sick ALL the time, making her worry, stopping her from coming to school, stopping her from talking to her friends face-to-face, stopping her from having a full life. It is not fair, so you had better stop mucking around. She has had, more than enough doctor’s appointments and blood tests because of you. She should not need to meet anymore of these specialists that you are forcing her to travel to.
I am not sure why you insist on making her life even harder? She has been through more than enough and does not need YOU to top it all off. We have to go to school, do our homework, assignments, and exams, be social, be kind, polite, forgiving, help our parents without complaint and we get by. We do it.
So I don’t see why your small job is such a problem? She is much too young to be worrying about these things.
I am sick of you, just like she is.
As our old history teacher would say, “You had better start getting your act together, or else.
That is all for now, you should consider yourself warned. Okay?
Now get back to work.
(Bio): I am 16 years old and am in grade 11 at school in Australia. My good friend has recently discovered that her thyroid is to blame for her constant illnesses; I guess this is, my weird way of letting her know that I’m on her side.
