A Most Delicious Raspberry
Today while at work, I was sitting at my desk as usual, doing my work. A co-worker came by needing some assistance with something in my area of expertise. As he observed my leg bouncing up and down on it’s own, as happens with nervous, excited, or anxious people, he asked “Have you been drinking coffee today?”
I hardly ever drink coffee. And I usually steer clear of caffeine as it gives me unnerving heart palpitations. But I knew where he was going with that question.
I replied “No, I haven’t. I’m just feeling normal today. When I was young and all growing up, I was just naturally fidgety. All the time. And then I got thyroid disease and I went all **blah**.” At that point I just sort of melted in my chair dramatically. But then I added “But today, I feel normal, the way I used to before I got thyroid disease.”
So thyroid disease, pphhtthhhhtttt on you!
