Tap, Tap Tapazole
I knew the first time the doctor tried to give you to me that you were bad news, but at least you were better than propylthiouracil (PTU). But what choice did I have? My levels were almost four times higher than normal. Too high for surgery and too high for radiation. I was a walking “thyroid storm” waiting to happen and there was nothing I could do but take you.
But did you really have to try to kill me? I mean, I did NOTHING to you! NOTHING! All I wanted was to get better so I could lead a half way normal life, but noooooo, you have something else in mind. You thought it would be funny to make me so severely allergic to you that I end up in the ER half dead.
Haha, laughs on me. The numbers are still too high for treatment and now I’m allergic to you! Do you have any idea how heart breaking it is to be told that there is nothing the doctors can do except keep me comfortable?
Well the last laugh is on you dear Tapazole. Somehow the doctors got my levels down low enough to give me the radioactive iodine treatment and keep you from killing me. You gave it your best shot, but try to remember next time that I am stronger than you. You might have tried to kill me, but it didn’t work!
I am ALIVE and I am well, and it’s no thanks to you TAPAZOLE!
