Today’s “Comment of the Day” for “Flying with Broken Wings: Making the Most of Life with Chronic Illnessis Lori’s comment. Every comment was absolutely FABULOUS, engaging and well thought out. We learned even more about our community’s outlook on life post-diagnosis, dealing with chronic illness for several years; as well as some extremely witty comments. Some comments were from people that don’t have a chronic condition who wanted to share their thoughts with Sarah – We welcome you and appreciate your input. We also heard from our resident vet about the affects pets have on people living with chronic illness and much more.

Sarah, you did a beautiful job and there are so many helpful ideas on how to not let thyroid disease ruin us and define us, which I think is so important.

Sometimes I still hear that little voice in my head saying, you’ve been robbed of so many years, it’s not fair, and I have a moment of feeling sorry for myself. I think thats the toughest part for me still, but I let it happen and then move on; thankfully, I’m not stuck in that awful place any more. I am so happy you are diagnosed and on the right track. I often think of you because the first thing I noticed when we met was that you were born the year I graduated high school and it was during those years that I became so much more aware tha something was awry.

Thanks again for a wonderful column.


The “Comment of the Day” from our “Thyrants” post by HD in Oregon embodies the spirit of why rants are so important and the humorous side of life in the Gland Canyon. ,   “Thyrants” are an integral part of our community; it gives each of us an opportunity to share the gland good and the gland bad. We celebrate each other’s successes and catch each other when we fall. We make each other laugh and cry. Ultimately, we understand what we’re going through by reading each other’s rants. This, among other things, connects us with each other and reminds us that we’re not alone.

    Thank you, Lori and HD for your wonderful comments and for bringing our community that much closer.

    I just read a post on Facebook from one of our thyrellas; she read the posts and comments from Thyrants and Sarah’s column and because everyone spoke up, she said she felt like she was more prepared for her doctor’s appointment. Similarly, she gleaned more insight into her disease and symptoms.

    I’m so proud of you and everyone else! Youse rock the world. Capisce? Capisce?!
