Comments Of The Day: July 27, 2010
YOU WERE ALL FLAWLESS TODAY! Thank you for connecting with our Dear Thyroid Letter author of the day and for reading/voting on Dorienne’s beautiful butterflygraph and others. YOU ARE THE GREATEST COMMUNITY ON THE PLANET.
CW wrote a beautiful Dear Thyroid Letter, Digging Through The Thy-Archive about packing for her upcoming relocation and what came up as a result. If you haven’t read her letter, please do. It’s AMAZING.
Excerpt: “Then there were the prescriptions sheets from when I was a graduate student with severe brain fog, barely holding onto to passing grades with my very brittle fingernails (I flunked out), the appointment reminder for FNA number one that never happened because the nodule shrunk, and the initially innocent reminder for my yearly ultrasound that I looked upon happily because I had lost weight, was feeling really good, and wanted to share that with my doctors. “

I sooo can relate to your story! The brain fog, for whatever reason, really never does leave us. You, my friend, are moving on and making the best of the situation. Unfortunately, we become much aware of the “gaps” in the medical world when we are faced with medical issues ourselves. Finding a competent provider (one who understands us and treats us as people) seems to be one of the most difficult things to do. Oh, and to go to the pharmacy and for them to be out of your meds…..GRRRR…………….
Butterfly Paragraph Submission, By Dorienne Plait – MAGNIFICENT! Read it. Cast your vote. Here’s an excerpt: “ I did further research on why the butterfly was connected to thyroid disease/cancer. I came to find out that the thyroid is in the shape of a butterfly, and I was even more astounded. The butterfly is so lovely, so gentle and harmless. The thyroid — my thyroid, in particular — had done a lot of harm and was not exactly lovely in my eyes. I was very angry and overwhelmed at the time.”
