Comment Of The Day March 11, 2010
Our Dear Thyroid Community grows stronger every day. Much like a family; we laugh, cry, debate, express our anger and much more. That, among other things, brings us closer and demonstrates our ability to connect with each other, and share our stories via letters, comments, rants and photos. The struggles we deal with day in and day out, including the impact our respective disorders has on our families, is what bonds us.
We have decided to launch “Comment of the Day”. Every comment is an expression of what each of our thyamily goes through and is important. We learn from each other’s comments and stories. We feel supported in our darkest moments and we laugh our asses off knowing that we aren’t alone. Someone out there in the ether, er, thyether reads between the lines and feels us deeply. That said, in the spirit of community, we are choosing one comment a day to post as an individual blog post.
Today’s comment was written by Sarah Broers regarding today’s letter “An Infinite Number of Monkeys Typing At an Infinite Number of Typewriters Might Not Produce Shakespeare, But They’ll Still Be Ahead of the Insurance Companies and Pharmacies“.
The discussion about Sharen’s letter dealt with issues thyroid patients face daily with respect to pharmacies, prescriptions and insurance companies. In fact, in many ways, this conversation was a continuation of Wednesday’s column “Going For The Throat: Confessions of a Health Insurance Neophyte“, written by our EIC/Health Care, Robyn Davis Hahn.
Sarah, thank you for your comment and thank you, Dear Thyroid community for bringing our community closer together, and for allowing us to learn more about you and about ourselves.

Our insurance companies should NOT determine what types of medications we receive. This should be between us (the patient) and our physicians. I just don’t get it! Keep fighting~thanks for standing up for yourself and the rest of us!
