You may only be a gland shaped like a delicate insect, tucked ever so neatly below the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœvoice box’, but oh what havoc you have reeked on the rest of your fellow body, mind and spirit parts!
This relationship has been more challenging than any I’ve ever incurred, including my marriage. I realize it wasn’t your fault, that family genes and “the kissing diseaseÃ¢â‚¬ most likely caused you to run amok, but why did you have to be so subtle in rearing your ugly head in so many ways, over so long a period??!!
What a fusspot about what foods I eat! Can’t you co-operate with your menopausal hormone buddies, or lack thereof, and get your act together!!? At least then I’d know which one to blame! I feel like “SybilÃ¢â‚¬ some days. Who will I wake up as tomorrow??!!, And what size pants will I buy today? Why can’t I get a suntan over the spot where you lie under? I look like I have a white butterfly stencil on my neck, just a reminder of your omnipotence I guess?
I get it already. I am trying my level best to give you all the attention you so desperately need. I’ve changed my dose and taken time for your substitute to kick in. I’m bumping up your hormone buddies, so get along now, won’t you?
I’ve given up more blood in your name. I try not to eat those foods you so easily let me know irritate the crap out of you, so reduce some poundage in kind, if that’s not too much to ask? Then maybe, just maybe we’ll be friends again; you and I, my little butterfly.
