Thyrants, thyroid symptoms discussion, thyroid patient laments, good and bad

Thyrants are an ongoing series published every Saturday of thyroid patient laments, good and bad, all are very honest. To our new thysistahs and thybrothahs, welcome to Dear Thyroid.

If you’d like to add a rant, please email Katie, or please post it in the comments section.

To everyone who ranted this week, great show! Good job.


Pamela Dobey Holt Peters: ha ha – some guy on a fitness site just posted that he has to “supplement his diet w/ a 1200 cal shake” which *is* healthy, and his weight went up ~30 lbs. Heck – just turn off yer thyroiod, dude!!! ; )

LauraLou: Hey, you, thyroid cancer cells in my neck:,   Your days are numbered!

christinah84: I, ´m taking my meds regularly. Every day at the same time. Why doesn, ´t that stop the symptoms?

Though you might not have thyroid disease or thyroid cancer, we’d love to hear from you. Leave a note in the comments section, please.

    I have caught my daughter’s cold. Yuck. I just had one a month ago. I am so damn achy…nothing is helping. I sent my husband to the store for some throat coat tea, organic cough drops, ginger root, and lemons. It seems so much worse having a sore throat on top of Hashi’s. OMG! Give me patience today!!!!!!!!

    hello ! i have hypothyroidism myself, it sucked in the last years since i gotten pretty big, like 40 pounds bigger ! it sucked but i got used to it ! the doctor put me on levothyroxine, and my skin went mad, i couldn’t use any make up, whick also sucks since i am a make up artist 😀 anyway, i read ken blanchard’s book, and i realised i have an allergic reaction and i switched to thyromine, been taking it for 3 days now , i also have insulin resistance, and with thyromine i can go without the pills for the resistance, which is pretty good ! i love them, they gave me energy 😀 i also complained and whined for a period , but then i realised it’s counter productive and i started looking for ways to heal myself, including reading a lot on the psychological causes of the disease, i also became willing to release some old hurts, and i felt better in a few days, my neck was less swollen 😀 i don’t want to offend anyone, but i think that focusing on the negative will only enhance it ! i also read louise hay , i recommend it to anyone 😀 i know thyroid disease is nasty, but let’s focus on healing and loving ourselves ! by the way i lost half of the weight with a light diet which included absolutely everything in smaller portions 😀 maybe i am a lucky one ! i also go to acupuncture sessions, they are great 😀 good luck for everybody ! lots of love from romania 😉

    Oh, Amy, I am SO SORRY! You are going through a vile shituation of epic proportions. Get rest and feel better soon, my sweet

    Hi Romania;

    I think it’s great that you proactively work on healing yourself. I also think it’s great that you’ve reached a positive place with your disease.

    I/we believe that every patient has their own right of passage with their disease. We embrace every emotion on Dear Thyroid. The kaleidescope of emotions encapsulates anger, sadness, happiness, humor and much more. We celebrate every emotion.

    We also refrain from telling patients how to feel. Each patient has a right to feel their feelings.

    Thank you for sharing your two cents.

    Be well, my dear,
