Comment Of The Day: June 5, 2010
Thank you to everyone for celebrating Dear Thyroid’s re-launch with the same passion and gusto you always have. You made today as special as you make every day. Thank you for reconnecting us – and sharing more of yourselves with us; we appreciate you so much. You make the gland canyon a sacred, safe and highly entertaining place to be.
In this morning’s post “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. -Pericles“, we thanked Liz for all of her incredible hard work, and welcomed everyone back to Dear Thyroid. Additionally, we shared some new things that we’re very excited about; submitting video and audio Dear Thyroid letters, our first official newsletter, and profiles, among other things. Thank you for your outpouring of support for Liz and Dear Thyroid’s future.

Welcome Back Dear Thyroid Next Generation! There is lots of wonderful new thyliciousness to see, can’t wait to explore it all.
I can’t express how much I will miss Liz and her column at Dear Thyroid, but I am very glad her articles are still here to look back on when I need it. Katie and Liz welcomed me and held my hand when I first found Dear Thyroid, and Liz taught me more than I ever could have imagined about ways to heal myself. I will always be so grateful. Hugs Liz…thanks a million♥ I know your future is going to be brilliant and I can’t wait to see where you go with your gift as you continue helping so many.
Onward and Upward Dear Thyroid – Welcome Melissa and Nicole. I look forward to getting to know you as well, and I’m sure many will benefit from your experiences.
Katie – Dear Thyroid Next Generation, YO! Looks magnificent. You should be proud, thysistah♥
We debuted the “Chronic Snarkopolist” column written by, Melissa Travis. What a brilliant comedy writer, she is. Though, she’s contending with far too many chronic conditions, she has a way of inviting us into the realities of what it’s like to live with chronic illness – have a laugh – and defining ourselves instead of our disease allowing us to define us. Today’s debut post was fantastic! If you missed it, please catch it “Medical Debtfetti“.
Thank you for connecting with Melissa today and getting to know her.

“I struggle daily to find an identity separate from being sick.”
If you figure this out, let me know. I don’t know how to separate cancer from who I am. Although, it’s changed me so much that I don’t know if I want to .
I can’t wait to read more from you!
