Never Was A One-Girl Kind of Thyroid
(Written by Nina, Thyroid Cancer Patient)
I am sorry we parted amidst such bad feeling. I truly regret the way I made you feel and if only . . . .
Our love hate relationship kept me driving in the fast lane, I knew that I could bring your love back when I impressed all your friends with the “lose 42 lbs in three weeks diet!, Wow, you looked so great in those teeny weenie clothes. I regret the times I sent you out of control and depressed but couldn’t resist just showing you who was in charge. As much as I knew how I tore you apart not knowing or being able to control who you were. I always went for the mean and moody type so to see you so made my love for you stronger. I know I pushed us too far when I sent you into crisis (thyroid storm) whilst you were meant to be enjoying your holiday with your other family. I didn’t mean to try and kill you.
I feel sad that you still felt we should divorce even when I behaved (most of the time) over the holidays and I fought to stay with you. A shame that darn surgeon was so good, but I did manage to make him spend another three hours than planned trying to part us!, I now know you have since found out I was also cheating on you, I never was a one girl kind of thyroid and when that sexy cancer walked into my life I just had to invite her in, I know you’ll understand that this was just me making sure I had the last word.
I sit here after being picked over by the geeks in toxicology knowing that I have taken part of you and hoping that just maybe you’ll forgive me and as sad as it makes me feel, hope you enjoy your life without me, I’m sure I will linger if only in your thoughts when you look in the mirror and see your second smile.
It was fun
