No love lost
(Written by LC, thyroidectomy patient)
Dear Dead Thyroid,
If I had not had you cut out, would you have begun to be kind?, I think not. All that is left of your life in my body is a scar. But your presence in my body for nearly 58 years was vulgar, creepy and downright mean!, I didn’t know how much of my life was misery because of you. How you made me wear larger size clothes, which brought comments from the uniformed that I was “putting on a little weight.”, Well, of course I wanted to get fat. What woman does not have that dream?? I also wanted to be depressed, suicidal at times, burning hot in the cold of winter, and so moody my family boycotts me.
I have you to thank for a lot of crap. In fact, you probably made me have to sleep with a CPAP machine, which I call C-CRAP in your honor.
Wherever you are this evening, I hope you are as miserable as I am.
