Thyroid Mad Libs by Pamela
Dear Missing in Thyaction,
When I think about you, I feel infuriated. In hindsight, I didn’t expect you to completely stop with no forewarning and no backup plan. I wish I knew than what I know now. Things would have turned out exactly the same, but at least I would have been able to educate myself sooner. Reflecting back on the past 15 years, I feel angry and saddened about what I’ve lost and all the weight I’ve gained.
What’s changed is, well EVERYTHING! Emotionally, my life has been radically transformed for the worse. Physically my life has changed and sunk to the bottom of a deep sea of exhaustion. Financially, my life has gone from great to not so great. I wasn’t prepared for one tiny little bilobed gland to affect me body, mind and spirit!
I guess what I most worry about is that fact that you change minute by minute and that once I get everything balanced, you decide to change.
Interestingly enough, this disease has taught me many wonderful things about myself. I had not realized that would be a byproduct of losing everything.
What scares me most about the future is nothing, because I know what to do to help you return to your old self. I’m learning to support you in every way possible and to not solely rely on those darn prescription meds. I believe that things will improve and that you will completely heal. I guess what I’m saying is that, my goals, dreams and hopes are aimed at the stars and at perfect healing!
In closing, I would like to add my thanks to you for infuriating me to the point that I’ve now been able to help countless others find improved health.
Take that, you jerk!
