Dear Thyroid Chicago Meet Up

Local Chicago Dear Thyroid Meet up hosted by Jennifer Jennings

Last Saturday, three Chicago area thyrellas met at a local coffeeshop to share our thyroid woes and have some laughs. We snagged a table in the back of the shop, which provided for some perfect people watching.

I was delighted to first meet Gaye and then Lisa. We shared information about our conditions and bonded over some of the most annoying thyroid symptoms: feeling freezing and sweating or being hot when it’s 20 degrees out, etc. We also talked about how good doctors are difficult to find.  Lisa is very lucky to be seeing her childhood doc who notices historical trends.

Our conversation wandered to our lives and what we did professionally. The coffee was great, as was the company, and we plan to have another Dear Thyroid meetup within the month. If our busy schedules allow for some coffee and conversation. We hope that more will join us.

it was good to meet people going through similar experiences in person. Although I wished that there had been someone there with Grave’s, because the experience is a little different than hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s.

But, I found it to be an enjoyable, fun, connecting experience.

Who lives in Chicago and would like to join these lovely thyrellas for the next Dear Thyroid meet up in Chicago? Leave your response in comments, add your location to the forums or email Katie.

    I’m a thyroid cancer patient about 50 miles west of Chicago, but I’d be interested in a meetup.
