Dearest Darlingest Thyroid-Popsicle (I love whoever understands this reference),

When I think about you, I feel mournful. In hindsight, I didn’t expect you to spaz out. I wish I knew then what I know now. Things would have turned out probably about the same. Reflecting back on the past four years, I feel acceptance about what I’ve lost and gained.

What’s changed is everything about me, my outlook on life, and the way I see the relationships within my life. Emotionally, my life has been radically altered. Physically, my life has changed how I look at my body. Financially, my life has never been more expensive. I wasn’t prepared for the direct effect you would have on my family.

I guess what I most worry about is how many more in my family will suffer from thyroid cancer. Interestingly enough, this disease has taught me everything about myself. I had not realized that would be a byproduct of papillary thyroid cancer.

What scares me most about the future is watching those around me receive diagnoses. I’m learning strength, courage, and trust. I believe that things will eventually turn out fine for all of us. I guess what I’m saying is that, my goals, dreams and hopes are all positive and always within reach.

In closing, I would like to add suck it, thyroid cancer!
