Fat Thigh-roid Woes: Goodbye Graves!
Dear All at DT, it has come time for me to bid you farewell.
I’ll tell you why…
It’s time for me to move on from Graves and living in the Graves World. I want to put this whole mess behind me, and remember G with fond and bitter memories, therefore, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to live in Graves Disease Land on a weekly basis. I sincerely feel it’s healthier for me to move on mentally, and that was difficult to do when I have to write about it. Also, I’m looking into pursuing something new with where I’m going with my writing, and the stars are aligning ever so sweetly for me.
I still have a lot of work to do with my health, my mind, and my everything – closing the Graves chapter will help tremendously.
While it fucked my body up, it brought me to a new understanding of where life can and will lead.
It also brought me to all of you here at this wonderful community, and for that I am grateful. I’m still keeping my email address – firstname.lastname@example.org and I want you to use it. Please email me your stories, your rants and raves, or even just to say hello. While I might not be writing weekly, I’m still here to listen and keep in touch.
I want to thank Katie for giving me this opportunity, she has no idea how much healing has come from being able to share my thoughts and stories with all of you these past nine months, and I’ll be forever grateful for her support – she rocks!
While we may feel like we’re not lucky in the grand scheme of things by having to deal with this disease, we’re incredibly blessed to be a part of a such an amazing and supportive group of people here. Silver lining ya’ll!
I hope each and every one of you finds health, balance, and happiness. Start by taking yourselves out on a well deserved date. Wine and dine your inner child.
I’ll miss writing for DT, but I’m looking forward to what the future brings. Thank you all for being so amazing and supportive!
Love to you all!
