Comment Of The Day: June 26, 2010
“Whatever is unnamed, undepicted in images, whatever is omitted from biography, censored in collections of letters, whatever is misnamed as something else, made difficult-to-come-by, whatever is buried in the memory by the collapse of meaning under an inadequate or lying language — this will become, not merely unspoken, but unspeakable.” –Adrienne Rich
Thyrants, Thyraves, Wings, Things, And Chemistry, Oh My! “Our new thing at Dear Thyroid is to pair our Thyrants and Thyraves with sentences to complete. Our community is comprised of thyroid literary wit, intelligence and snarkiness. Ah, we adore you.”
FANTASTIC RANTS and RAVES TODAY—get it out of your body and into the world. Every time we give voice to our disease, we invoke change within ourselves and each other.
My rant is this. I had lost 30 pounds. They got my medication right, finally, and not only have I put the 30 pounds back on, but I can’t stop eating now. I can’t stand this anymore! I have started to put ice cubes in a glass with my 1/2 litre water bottle and am chewing the ice to avoid wanting to eat something. HELP!!
Thyroid Cancer Gets A Nugget: Calling All Sports Fans…and Everybody Else “This celebrity advocate just might pave the way to make our voices heard. So, thymmunity, let’s keep talking. Let’s keep raising awareness. Let’s do all we can to make ourselves Invisible No More!”
As DAT said on a post on Facebook, (I’m paraphrasing), we must celebrate this man and thank him for what he’s done for thyroid cancer and cancer research. Please head over to the post when you get a minute and extend your thanks, in comments.
This is really wonderful and it gives me more hope, I already had some because of DT and the work that Linda has been doing to contact celebrities that have been affected. A face to our disease could make a huge difference.
I’m going to watch Coby Karl and cheer him on, not for the sake of basketball necessarily but because he deserves acknowledgement for what he is doing. Maybe one day we can find a way to cheer him on in person? That would be awesome. Does he have a website? I think I am going to get in touch with him and let him know we exist and appreciate him.
This has been an amazing week for DT, I am so excited about what the future has to bring! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thanks for sharing this with us!
