Thyrants, December 5 — 12
@shirley_jacob You are making a new, strange and different person out of me, day by day. Wonder when it will end…
@2cute2missGifts I am annoyed that I have to take a pill every morning for the rest of my life and wait at least an hour before eating because of you.
@nekobawt I’m losing my mind, and I refuse to go quietly.
@christinah84 Maybe we have been quiet b/c our foggy brains made us forget we are sick. Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?
@christinah84 I’m having those “you-don’t-know-what-it’s-like-to-have-an-autoimmune-disease-so-shut-up-moments” quite a lot recently.

Lori Graham Atkinson Dear thyroid, Grrr you are annoying. First you left my heart pounding and my blood pressure sky high. So I decided on my own without that damn doctor’s help, to lower my dose a bit. Now I am constipated. WTF? It is 50 degrees outside and I have been FREEZING! Why do you feel the need to torture me like this, why? Is anything ever good enough for you? If they had a thyroid store, I would be going there tonight to buy a new one. You would go in the trash where you belong. Or perhaps the toilet? lol
Cyndi Potts Woodruff Oy…. I’m wearing my “Hashimoto’s Yo” t-shirt. I don’t think the generic Cytomel is working like the REAL stuff did. I’m so cold…. I have the heat WAY up and I’m covered in two blankets. NOT me! I’m also perimenopausal and usually live in the hot flash (or power surge) land!!! HEY!!! I said ‘Oy’ and my t-shirt says ‘Yo’! Oops…. sorry. See?? NO concentration… ugh.
Sarina Favazza-Bray I was put on Synthroid for a week a whole week, then dropped me down to Cytomel because they didn’t want me to have t4 because of the up and coming i131 radiation, and *I fell like the proverbial testing dummy. Now I can take the Cytomel till Christmas day then off it again so I can be off it for a month before my radiations treatment in January. I’m sick of it all I could just scream, my emotions are all over the place and my Christmas spirit sucks and I have my mom and my granddaughter coming for two weeks, I no more feel like entertaining that the man in the frikken moon; I have been in bed all day coughing and snotting and feeling sorry for my self lately Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcause all I want to do is decorate my house and have the Christmas spirit. Thanks cancerous thyroid and lymphoma I love you too, Not!!!!!!!!!! Oh I had my levels checked I was in the 100’s and normal is 5. Am I hypo or what?? I feel like going to the mall and sitting on Santa’s lap and choking the shit out of him but I’d scare the little kids. Might make me feel better though.
Anita Roberts Why oh WHY am I suddenly getting huuuuuge zits this week???? My nails are growing fast. Hair too. Sigh.Ssleep? What sleep????? Guess my Hashi’s is in low gear so I’m just a skosh over medicated. Ah, gotta love it.
