Oh, Thyroid, Its Cocktail Time — Whoop-Whoop — Not
I know you’re having a hard time of it lately, but dammit, you’re making me crazy here! (Literally) Today, I feel half-alive for the first time in a week. I’m dragging around like a zombie, but at least I’m dragging. Yesterday when I went out into the back yard to see what the dog was barking at, I realized that, OMG, I miss my backyard! I’ve become far too intimate with the bed for any normal, sane person. I’m also feeling on the positive side of the see-saw today. People at work actually commented on it. I was feeling so depressed, I didn’t realize Irritable Male Syndrome had turned me into a nasty Mr. Hyde. No wonder the dog is acting skittish. (Must! Resist! Urge! To! Smash! Things! And! Growl!)
Normally I’m quite sympathetic to your plight, your victimhood. But we all have our limits….
Anyway, I think I’ve discovered a little secret of yours. I know this is horribly unhealthy and lowbrow, but the other day I said to myself “Dammit, I feel so horrible… like the walking dead… that I need a beer! … and chips… and green bean casserole… and to call my mother.”
So, I called my mother, and I drank four beers, (not at the same time) (but I didn’t get any chips, and I was too aggravated by the whole fuckin everything to cook a casserole). But lah-dee-dah, four beers later I felt better than I’d felt in a week. You’re a “little alky”, as they say. Well, that’s good to know. Now, I know how to placate you when you decide to take time off again without first asking my permission.
But don’t expect this to become a pattern. I know better. I won’t allow you a crutch. Buck it up and work hard like the rest of us. Take a clue from Brain if you have to… he never stops working (not even when you stop delivering the gas).
Not your friend today,
(Bi0) Mike is 37 years old and has nobody-knows-why hypothyrodism, since at least January 2000. He never liked roller coasters as a child, and so finds it terribly sadistic that his thyroid would be taking him on a metabolic/emotional one right now. Follow Mike on Twitter!
