Dear Thyroid, How Many More Teen Years Would You Like From Me?
Well, it has now been 3 years since I found out you have existed.
Let me tell you its been a hell of a 3 years not to mention me being a teenager and all. You ruined my freshman, sophomore, and now junior year of high school, but thanks to my new friend Armour, you are NOT going to ruin my senior year.
For the love, I am 17 years old and have seen more doctors in the past 3 years than my 70 year old grandma has seen in her lifetime.
Not to mention I nuked you twice so you wouldn’t send me to the grave. Yet everyday you still give me damn trouble. My teachers think I am a druggie because all I ever do in class is sleep. When I’m actually awake, I just stare off in a gaze.
The only time I raised my hand for a question in class was in biology, and guess who they were talking about? You, of course.
I sleep more than I am awake, yet my doctor says I’m actually hyper just because I take Armour and I have a suppressed TSH. Hyper my ass. I’m taking almost the right amount of what your SUPPOSED to, so I am going on a doctor hunt to get the correct dose.
It would just be so much easier if you didn’t get diseased and didn’t start overworking yourself, then I wouldn’t have had to hurt you.
Hate to break it to you, thyroid, but Karma’s a bitch!
