Romeo And Thyliet
Written by: Becky (Thyroid Patient, Nodule Removal)
A little more than two months ago, I had you cut in half. You will recall that we agreed that this was best for both of us. You were carrying a golf ball-sized nodule on your left side, and pressing it into my wind pipe. Because you carried this burden, and because I was having difficulty breathing, this was the best option for both of us.
I have since had blood drawn to check your levels, and found that you are slightly hypothyroid. This is fine with me. At this time, my Endocrinologist told me that I do not need to medicate you. I found this to be wonderful news for us. It gives me time to take care of some other health issues, and hopefully stop taking other medications before adding thyroid medication.
I hope that you accept this as a gift from me to you.
I love you, Thyroid.
