Thyroid, Don’t You Take My Man Away From Me

Dear Thyroid,

Please, I beg you…PLEASE don’t screw this up again!

I’ve met an angel, and you’ve been behaving, but what if you act up?? This man is a dream, and you could ruin everything.

Just stay normal enough so that hopefully he gets as attached as I am.

Can you do that? Last time you only gave me a couple weeks.

Can I have a couple of months this time?

He’s super, he’s romantic, and he’s caring… He’s sweet, he’s manly, and he’s a dream…

I can’t afford for you do screw it up! I’ll do anything you ask of me.. I’ll eat right, exercise; take my meds, whatever you want!

Just please… I beg you. Don’t screw this up.

My name is Tasha Weishaar and beginning last Christmas I had the biggest thyroid crash of my life. I didn’t just get tired; it was the opposite that time. I was sleeping one-hour a night. I got extremely shaky.

Two days before this Christmas, my thyroid was finally stabilized and they declared my numbers perfect! I was thrilled to say the least. When I went through that major setback, I lost someone that I thought I really loved. I came to learn that that man was as clingy as my thyroid. He was so un-loving, opposite and uncaring, but at the time I didn’t care. I just needed love.

Now I’m healthy and have been given a second opportunity at love. Something I never thought I would get again. Thank you so much for this web page! He asked to see it and is very interested in learning about it. One more for awareness getting out there! Happy, healthy holidays to all

    Don’t worry about it! Just be the best person you can on any given day. If he’s the right person for you, he will understand.

    I think it’s a good idea to tell him about your thyroid disease and how it affects you. I’m a guy and knowing that someone I’m dating has a medical issue that affects them psychologically at times helps me understand them and not judge them too quickly.

    I’m trying to get back on track since my thyroid disease also. I’ve had similar worries about dating. You usually want to be at your best while dating someone new but there are those days when that just can’t happen.

    Thanks for your post. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one thinking about this.

    If he’s really Mr. Right, he’ll like/love you despite the craziness that is a wonky thyroid. Case in point: my ex used to blame all of HIS bad behavior on MY thyroid. He got caught lying and I was angry? “Maybe my thyroid needed to be checked.” Four years later, I am with Mr. Right, and he doesn’t blame my thyroid for his behavior, and he’s as understanding of it as one can be without actually having the issues. So, don’t worry about it. Be yourself. 🙂

    I’ve dealt with the ups and downs of thyroid disease with my husband since my diagnosis in 2005, it seems to be very difficult for him to understand . I went from being very active and focused , to feeling tired and confused at times. How do you explain to your close-minded husband that it is a real disease. And I cannot help the way it makes me feel.

    My thyroid has taken nearly everything I have away from me. It is very hard to explain what it does to me, and it gets away with a lot. I am tired of not being the same amazing person who I once was. I was adventurous, kind, and could do anything. Until my thyroid transformed me into some monster. I can’t accomplish much, and while starting college, it is important to do your best. I do my best, but people think that I look and sound drunk, and am lazy because I take the elevator, and am not willing because I can’t focus enough to do homework and classwork. I hate how my thyroid treats me, and how it makes me treat others. This is really something that even I wouldn’t understand if I didn’t go through it, and I am a very understanding person. This note is even hard to do, but it needs to be known just how much you have to go through with these problems.
