Dear Thyroid,

I hate you more than any words can say!   I have had a love/hate relationship with you!  We’ve had an intimate relationship since I was only 16!   Just before my 21st birthday, on January 20, 1993, I had half of you surgically removed!

My only regret is that I neglected to have all of you removed! My thoracic surgeon asked me if I wanted to have kids and I said yes!,   So the only part of you that remains is the left half.   Now, that half has split in two and,  half of you are underneath my breast bone.   The other half is still up on the left side of my neck!

I hate you because now, I’m low thyroid.   You make it so hard for me to lose weight!  There is a beautiful thin woman inside of me…. screaming, wanting, and waiting to live and breathe on the outside of me. And, instead here is the fat version of me.

Now, I have to take a different Synthroid because Armour thyroid medicine has been taken off of the market!,   I’m so mad!

(Bio) My name is Lisa Holley. I just turned 36 years-old in March of 2009.   I love to write in my journals on a daily basis! I am a songwriter. Soon, I hope to own my very own record label in Nashville, Tennessee! My favorite journal is “My Letters To My Future Husband” journal…I have been writing in them since 2000 or 2001!,   I’m not good at staying within boundaries that other people set for me.

    “She’s a good hearted woman in love with a good-timing gland,
    She loves it in spite of it’s wicked ways that she don’t understand.
    Through synthroid and armour they’ll pass to the endo hand in hand,
    A good hearted woman lovin’ her good-timing gland.”

    Who doesn’t love a little Waylon Glandings?

    Walk slow, walk straight try look you friends right in the eyes.
    That’s what ma T-gland told me, when I was about to cry
    It said be a proud girl and hold your thyboobs high
    So they can all move out way as you pass them by.

  7. Lolly says:

    Ps Last line again made a mistake second verse on it’s way.

    So they can all move outta the way as you pass them by.


    Now I’m in trouble with the law for swinging far too high.
    I got that sucker in the balls, the other one in the eye.
    The judge he said hey Lolly you got any thing say.
    I tried blame it on my Endo cus I saw him just today.

    If you want more let me Know I could go on and on and on.

    Lisa what a great letter too and now you got us all singing your tune.
