How can you choose a winner out of hundreds of fantastic entries?,   I’m still in awe over the response to the Six Word Thygraph article and contest.   And while it is trite, I do think you are all winners.   We all shared our struggles and triumphs, vented our anger and sadness, poked fun and waxed poetic.   For me, I experienced a little of the same catharsis as when I wrote my Dear Thyroid letter, but it was so much less WORK–the equivalent of a quick and yummy appetizer in lieu of a heavy meal!

I asked Katie, Liz, and my husband Brian (Did you see his entries?,   Not too shabby!) to join me in choosing one favorite each as a semi-finalist.   It took a bit longer than anticipated, frankly because we all had many favorites.   I then let a random generator choose the final winner to keep it all fair and objective.

Here are the highly anticipated semi-finalist Six Word Thygraphs:

So many thyroids…so little healing…


A tiny Samurai attacks my thyroid


Hitting rock bottom again and again


One little gland jacking me around

And a huge congratulations to….WENDY!,   Wendy, please contact Katie to redeem your prize–a Dear Thyroid T-shirt of your choosing, for you or your Samurai!,   (Or, you can have your Thygraph emblazoned on a shirt for yourself–I’d buy one, too 🙂 ).

Thanks again to everyone–you all are the reason that Dear Thyroid is special!

    Congrats, Wendy!!! Way to go!!

    When I think about it, it does feel kinda like there is a teeny, tiny attacking Samurai waaayyy back there in my throat, and it is jacking me around, making me hit rock bottom, and I wish, oh, how it wish it could be healed!! lol

    I thought all the posts were awesome! All those people out there who identify with each other, and with me. They were all thoughtful, meaningful and some heartbreaking, but of all the ones that I posted myself,(and there were alot…that was very addictive!) I liked that one the best. Thanks,gals!! I feel kinda proud!! 🙂
