In honor of Thyroid Awareness Month, I thought we could all share a laugh and/or cry at the dumb questions we have heard!

Here goes my Top Ten, in no particular order…

10.       Is the thyroid one of your “lady parts”?

9.         Have you tried portion control?

8.         Is that why you are such a bitch?

7.         Maybe you should join a gym?

6.         Is that your thyroid sticking out of your neck or are you just happy to see me?

5.         Why are you so tired all the time?

4.         Have you seen the new Jenny Craig commercial…(pause)?

3.         Isn’t that the easy cancer?

2.         If you bring your cancer, can I bring my bong?

1.         Do you really need your thyroid anyway?

So grateful for  Thyroid Awareness Month!!!!!!!

  1. These are great, Suzanne. One of my personal faves: “Is the thyroid in your shoulder?” Funny, but also shows the need for more awareness.

    CONGRATULATIONS on being cancer free!!!

    Great questions Suzanne congratulations on being Cancer free don’t you just love those dumb ass questions like isn’t that in your brain. Maybe it’s in our minds I so wish I hadd been asked that question
    ” Is that your thyroid sticking out of your neck or are you just happy to see me?”
    Would I have not had the answer to that one, you bet your life I would.. thanks for sharing.

    @Joanna – LOL! “Is your thyroid in your shoulder?”

    @Amanda – 7 out of 10 is amazing and pathetic!

    @Lolly – That one was from my husband, who has Hashimoto’s, so I let it slide 😉
