To Know You is to Hate You
Why do you choose how I sleep or when I have pain? I am so tired of being tired, with soreness when I walk a good distance.
My doctors say I’m fine.
You control my world and my temperature, so I perspire when I shouldn’t. You make it hard to get through a day. You make it hard to wake up for my day, to begin with. I am always super tired; too tired to help my husband and unable to enjoy his company. I dislike being cold when it is nice outside. I’m getting sick of having tea and milk, yet you give me heartburn, when you feel like I am incorrectly taking care of you.
I live with a wonderful man that is helping me to deal with your issues. I am tired of every condition you give to my life, making it miserable. You and I need to get along. I don’t want you to tell me how to act. It is depressing that you are playing Master of my life.
I am tired of not having the energy to enjoy my walks or bicycle rides with my wonderful man, because you have granted me with asthma, which makes my life worse because I need more medicine once a month.
Why did you choose me or did someone else choose this life for me and you just helped? I feel I’m punished forever to bring harm to my wonderful husband, Scott.
Scott, I am sorry, my thyroid is messing up our marriage. I know you love me despite the issues my thyroid is causing. Please forgive my thyroid.
Thyroid, I love you and hate you too. Please get along with me…We need to work together, not separately.
