Acrostic poetry is our way of reminding Invisible Illness Week, among other sites that thyroid diseases, conditions and thyroid cancers ARE invisible. Every time we write and submit a poem sharing our experience of our diseases, irreverently, humorously, or seriously, we let the world know, HEY, HI, GUESS WHAT, WE’RE NOT INVISIBLE. This is what our disease is doing to us! What’s invisible about that?!

This week, the word is: FANTASTIC. Be sarcastic, be serious, be irreverent, be whatever you want to be. Write – write your hearts out and submit to Katie. We will publish every poem we receive.

    Feeling overwhelmed, dreading what’s next

    Angry at life, it just isn’t fair

    Not going to give up, “after all…tomorrow is another day”

    Then there is the guilt, some have it much worse

    Again? Why can’t it just go away

    So confused, what should I do, too much information to process in my fuzzy mind

    Taking it an hour at a time, which is an improvement, used to be minute by minute

    Incredible caring family and friends, many who really do try even though they can’t understand

    Cancer schmancer… you’re not going to win!

    cas95667 I feel your struggle, I think you wrote this very well. I am happy that you have a family support system, they must be amazing people.
    Many of us here have not had the family success. I wish you’d write about them, I want to know people like these.
    I guess I draw the wrong kind of people to myself.
    What values should I look for when starting a new friendship?
    I personally have let them go.
    I need to learn how to reconize a quality person!
    Thank you, Linny
