For 30 Years You have Tortured Me, Thyroid; And Now…
Dear (butterfly) Thyroid,
Why do you do this to us? To me, to the people here in this group, and to any other person undiagnosed? All we ever did was look after you.
Your once beautiful pinkness has now turned to gray.
Your wings are spreading yet it feels, and looks, like the cocoon is still nesting in my neck. It feels like your wings are spreading more and more until my throat becomes sore.
My Endocrinologist – your Entomologist – is now taking care of you. You decided you didn’t want me as your only career. I am now going to get a biopsy on the 13th of September to see what is wrong with you and your little friends the nodules. Because of your selfishness, I might have cancer.
I don’t want to take care of you anymore. I had looked after you for 30 years, then on the 31st year (October, 2009), you decided to spread those now ugly, gray wings. Did you get sick of me? Is this why I’m now sick? I don’t even have any medication to help you turn back into the beautiful creature you once were.
Fly, ugly butterfly. You’re a literal pain in the neck. Please, be gone, or at least get better and turn into your beautiful, pink self again. The same goes for everyone else with Thyroid diseases/cancers. We don’t deserve this. Butterflies are supposed to be beautiful creatures. Live up to that image. Please.
A friend no more,
