Thanks For My Thyrutal Life
My Dear Thyroid,
You are a pain in my neck!!
I absolutely resent the fact the quality of the rest of my life depends on that little pill, which really doesn’t help all that much. Why, why, why did you fail me?
Because of you, I look and feel like a bloated toad. Because of you, I move about as fast as a three-toed-sloth. Because of you, I suffer from CRS (can’t remember shit). Because of you, I’m surprised my husband hasn’t left me since I have absolutely NO libido and no energy if I did! Thanks a lot!
I took good care of you in my youth, and this is how you treat me?! Oh, I’ve had muscle aches and headaches before, but at least I did something to deserve them. Now, I don’t have to do anything and I still hurt!
Oh, and thanks a lot for the heart palpitations. I don’t know how many nights I’ve laid awake wondering if the old ticker was going to flutter and die. The only good thing to come out of that was a trip to a wonderful cardiologist who did a stress test, echocardiogram and carotid doplar.
At least I know my heart is working like it’s supposed to! I just wanted you to know how terribly disappointed and disgusted with you I am.
(Bio) I’m a 60 year old female diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis about seven years ago. I was put on 75mcg of Synthroid which worked fine until my mail order pharmacy suggested I take levothyroxin instead as it would save ME money. Last winter was the worst of my life with exhaustion, dry skin, weight gain, and feeling cold constantly. My thyroid was increased to 100 mcg but I still have symptoms and continue to gain weight. Back to Synthroid!
