Coffee, the Morning Paper, and a Little Ball of Hate
Today, I totally hate you! I recognize the symptoms that have been creeping back into my life unwelcome. The snapping at my loved ones, the fatigue, the lack of zest in my life, the unhealthy hair, the emotional roller coaster, and my favorite—never feeling like I am truly rested. Like I woke up after a few hours of sleep because I have been at a drunken party.
Granted, I am five and a half months pregnant. But, I can tell the difference between thyroid and pregnancy symptoms. I hate you! I am not okay today! I do not want to accept the fact that I have Hashimotos today!
I want a healthy thyroid. I don’t want this pity party, but I’m having a hard time moving past it. I am just so damn tired. I feel the love and concern of those around me. And, while it warms my heart, it does not change the fact that I feel like crap, inside and out.
So, I hate you. I am distressed that I have to deal with this. That it is not an easy fix. That I will be on the roller coaster of Hashimoto hell all my life. Sometimes, incredible highs. And, sometimes so low that I feel like I am in hell.
In resentment of you,
