“My Image of My Disease”

(thyroid disease)

I wait and wonder as the black hole in my neck sucks the energy from my life. It takes time and joy away from my children. It steals the last bits of romance from my already stale marraige. No one really knows what’s deep down in there, no matter who’s science we use to scan my curious gland. Multiple nodules; some hot and some cold. They squeeze my throat like an oh so gentle gag. Will it all go away with surgery or will I have to fight it forever? No one can tell me. I have no answers for now. It’s only a black hole.

    Thanks. I was hoping to have a few answers by now, but it’s still the black hole in my life. Tomorrow I’m seeing a new endo in hopes of getting some help.

    As of Tuesday my “black hole” is being considered possible Hashimoto’s. We’re trying 3-6 months of Synthroid. If that doesn’t work magic it’s got to be cut out.
