The Voices Of Thyroid Disease
I — uh — got so carried away with the sudden thyku inspiration that I neglected to post any other supporting material with those seventeen syllables.
Far be it from me to stick with the usual perspective on things. The human experience is enriched when we open our eyes in other directions. And as I was sitting here on a very quiet, and relaxing Sunday afternoon — trapped in the air conditioning by the very oppressive heat wave outside — I ambled over to the Dear Thyroid website.
And what I saw were more people angry with their thyroids. (Understandably so.) And my mind thought “Well, what would Thyroid say in its defense?” I do believe Thyroid is as much a victim as the rest of the body; it didn’t choose to go awry. It’s genetic programming is to operate optimally. Something else damaged it, the same way we feel our bodies and minds have been damaged by Thyroid.
Not all of those thykus are from Thyroid’s voice, but most are.
I should go read more letters. I seem to derive inspiration from them…
