What does patient care mean to you and what are you willing to do to get the care you deserve? I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, among other things. What else is new?! What occurred to me during my little rumination session was how resolute each member of this community is about this. Everyone is a fighter, even when someone feels like the fight has been sucked out of every vein in their body; they, you continue fighting.

Don’t stop. Keep fighting. You give us all thyinspiration. We adore you madly.

Hope from a Chrysalis, written by Linda, was a beautiful, heartfelt and gut wrenching letter to Linda’s thyroid. Here is an excerpt “This shakingstaringwildeyedgirlisstillhuman…I think? Will you give me a chance to explain? No use, the cover of “my story” says Don’t Read. We can’t get past that! Sigh. How many times do I walk away and tell myself to breathe, stop shaking, get a grip, relax, it will be okay, let me pull all my loose threads, I’ll be back, next time I will be calmer and you won’t remember me the same way.” I would suggest clicking through, giving it a read and sharing your story with Linda, too.

Today’s comment….

Very brave and beautiful, like a butterfly

Fat Thigh-Roid Woes: Russian Roulette of Medication, written by Nicole Wells, is a wonderful piece about thyroid medications and allergies or adverse reactions to them. many patients have spoken up about not being able to take medication or get treatment due to this issue. Please connect with Nicole and share your story with her. Every time we share our stories, we learn more about ourselves and each other, which brings us closer as a community, yo!

Tomorrow, we’re kicking off the day with Thyrants, a literary healing, and a few other things we’ve got cooking.

Love,

Katie
