Thyrants, November 21 — 28
@Yodat My thyroid made me sign up to run a 5K on Turkey Day. “I think I can I think I can…
@KristenDeem I’d be mighty grateful this Thanksgiving if my effing hair would grow back!
@KristenDeem An MD (informatics genius) I work with just said “endocrine testing is a bit like black magic…” -perfectly put.
@catchyseachild My stupid voice is all cracking and can’t pick a range again. Ugh.
Katie Lynch Dear thyroid, why have you been making my face so swollen lately? I’ve had no soda, little salt and followed all of your other rules. Why can’t you play fair?
A Melissa Dorado I had to get out my seat two times in my university class to go, plus I go during class every time. How embarrassing! The teacher has an attitude and tells me to sit in the corner so as not to interrupt the class. I almost went off on her because she’s a disease something or other professor. Why should I have to strain to see sitting in the corner? Especially with this eye b.s. problem? and then people must think I have diarrhea or something. Yay! I’m a Thyrant
Sarina Favazza-Bray Oh gosh lets see, I went to 5 doctors this week so far, all disagree on treatment for my cancer thyroid and lymphoma, so now they want to me to go a center in Houston to get another opinion and continue the torture, all agree something has to be done, so just do it already, why the torture, I’m sick of it, I’m worn, tired, drained, depressed, sick, tired, distressed, devoid of tears, angry, nervous, distrustful, gaining weight, weary, unhappy. I’ve started twitching, nerves of course, had to stop my lupus meds, which brings on more pain, I’m horse every morning and every night, I’m horizontal more than vertical, I don’t have the energy to rant, just type, I have to be void of all x-ray isotopes and radiation before I get my new i131 radiation for my cancer for at least 6 weeks which puts me into February, go figure, and now they have put me on a small amount of Synthroid to get me thru the holidays, then in the middle of January I have to get off then to get ready for the radiation in February…now is this a rant or what!!! i could have put all kind of curse works and swear words and just blew the roof off of you but why, nothing is gonna change and I have to deal…and IM wondering why, why me, and wondering why now and wondering what on good green earth did I do to deserve this, then I see a child with cancer and in the hospital and say Shut the hell up be glad I’m not one of those , and if IA could I’d take there pain for them, so no rant, no rave, just COPE and shut the hell up….Happy turkey day all…
Pamela Lau A big thyrave goes out to the awesome Dear Thyroid community!
Chris Prestano Better late than never… I got a thyrant for today: The movie (and books) “Crazy Sexy Cancer” are NOT porn for cancer patients. F*cking perverts.
