dial a disease literary game

Yesterday via Twitter and Facebook, we played a word mash-up game: Whatever your diseases are, combine them into one word. Example: Hashimoto’s + Fibro = Hashibro.

Below, you’ll see that the game morphed into a glandly lit-a-thon that included symptoms and issues thyroid patients face, but in word mash-up style.

Shan McKenzie Thycolepsy, thytzheimers, thymnesia, Hashibesity, letharoiditis, thymentia, glandaphopic, glandanoid, thysolated, thyagnosed, hyperglandanoid, hypomental, schizohashineouroitis, phlemstipated, hivespitations, constitration, confuguments, clutsomoto’s, apatharoid, hypervated……. Thytango,  Thyversation

Hans-Dieter Honscheid Thyropath, Thyromaniac…. Thypercalifragilistic-endo-alidociou

Ana Prpic Thyfriends

Ciara Maher MISthyagnosis

Robyn Davis Hahn Friendo

Today, @HDInOregon came up with Thylympics (thyilliant!)

How about having our very own Thylympics (that’s a handsome looking word, isn’t it?)… we could have disciplines like “Endo chasing”… or “Sleep Walking” … or how about “Eye Balling” for the Grave’s specialist among us?… can you come up with more?

Enter your word mash-ups for the Dear Thyroid Glossary (with proper credit) and your Thylympics entries; it’s V-day weekend, why not have a little glandly fun?!

    Agreed, Amy; they’re all fantastic.
