Thyrants December 26th
LauraLou: Thyroid cancer discovered in July, I hate you. Scar still tender and painful, I hate you. I am so angry but I don’t know if it’s because of being hyper for the first time in years (but not hyper enough for you, thyroid-cancer-still-residing-in-my neck…TSH still not low enough.) I’m feeling so much better and so much worse while feeling compressed and trapped by these two extremes.
Kristen Gast: The scale reads 123 and I feel like I am fucking 150. I can’t even fit into my jeans. You successfully made me have a panic attack in the movie theater for no reason at all. I hate you, and you better get your shit under control!
Joann C Sustachek: Looks like I’m going to be menstruating for the entire month, thanks thyroid!
Janet Stewart: Dear thyroid, Things were pretty messed up before you were removed. Now that you are gone, things are pretty messed up. But, I’m in a fighting mood and I’m gonna win this round.
Amy Elizabeth Parker: I love feeling well! But knowing my body as intimately as I do, I dread going away from home. I long for the comfort of my own home. I know that with thyroid disease, that if I am not well rested I turn into a very cranky woman. So, knowing this, I am going away from home for a night. I love to see my family and friends and I hate that my thyroid takes away some of that expectant joy!
Robyn Davis Hahn: Is it my thyroid or my over stimulated toddler that is making me tired and cranky? I shouldn’t have to ask…
Anita Roberts: yep. Aunt flow showed up three days early. Hope that doesn’t indicate an extended stay. Sigh. Hope she doesn’t mind spending time in this body with the cold and the snot and the sneezing… blech.
Yodat: sick and I don’t like it!
Katie Schwartz: Lost.
