Hi There, Thyroid, Let’s Be Friends
You’re a little lazy, I have to say. Apathetic? Sure. Feel useless? Yep.
You & I aren’t so different from each other, thyroid. Maybe we could get along.
The thing is, neither of us should be any of those things. I can’t be lazy & apathetic because I need good grades to go to college. I nearly flunked out of freshman year of high school, mostly because of myself but partially because of you. You definitely can’t feel useless. You have a use.
You made me spend most of my summer worrying & being terrified of having leukemia. All of my symptoms pointed to leukemia. Bone pain, extreme tiredness, anemia, pale skin, mysterious, prolonged bruising. I convinced myself I had it and was terrified for months. (And I’m still not sure about the mysterious bruising but I’m not going to blame you for that.) not to even mention the depression I was slowly sinking into.
Clean your act up, because I’m tired of being sick and in pain.
Of course, I know that isn’t going to happen. These pills will hopefully do it for you. But still, try your best, okay?
*pats neck* Have a nice day.
BIO: I’m a 15 year old girl with recently diagnosed (August 2nd) hypothyroidism. I don’t know yet if it’s Hashimoto’s. I was prescribed 50 mcg of Levoxl a day. I’ve never met or seen online anyone with a thyroid disorder that’s as young as I am. Anyone here know anyone?
