Thyroid Mad Libs by Becky
Dear Thyroid –
When I think about you, I feel pain, especially when yawning. In hindsight, I didn’t expect you to go tits up and try to strangle me. I wish I knew then what I know now. Things would have turned out covered at 100% by my insurance. Reflecting back on the past two years, I feel ripped off about what I’ve (lost or gained).
What’s changed is beyond my immature grasp of responsibility. Emotionally, my life has been radically fucked. Physically my life has changed in a thrashing fit of pain and fear. Financially, my life has laughed at me. I wasn’t prepared for any of this shit.
I guess what I most worry about is dying a nobody. Interestingly enough, this disease has taught me fuck all about myself. I had not realized that would be a byproduct of this goddamn fucking torture.
What scares me most about the future is missing it. I’m learning how alone I really am. I believe that things will continue to make me fat regardless of my TSH. I guess what I’m saying is that, my goals, dreams and hopes are buggered.
In closing, I would like to add, please somebody help me.
And a not inconsiderable amount of contempt.
