Dear Remaining Thyroid,

You & I have been through a lot.  And I know that it was really hard for you to see your other half  influenced by an awful huge mass, become ineffective, and then officially removed.  That kind of separation can be hard on anyone.  But Remaining Thyroid, I need more from you, and I am not sure how else to ask.  
I feel as though our relationship is so one-sided.  I try to keep moving forward, and you refuse to give me anything back.  I even started to help you out with some meds.  But I still think you can do more than that.  Our relationship deserves more than that.  And it's time for me to be selfish and say that I deserve more than that. 
Remaining thyroid, I am just so tired.  Tired of this current status and I want to have just one day without 5 hour energies, gallons of coffee, or emergency naps.  And more than anything I want to run again, the kind of running I did to train for marathons.  I know this is a lot for you to handle right now, but honestly, I'm surprised you haven't picked up on how I am feeling and made changes on your own.  
I am not sure what else to say, except I really need you try to make this work.  You need to produce your best effort and really make our relationship a priority.  Or else, I am going to have to completely replace you with meds or maybe even some day remove you all together.  Trust me, I do not want to go to those measures, but I am just not sure how much longer I can do this.  

I hope you take this letter seriously and more than anything, I am here for you.  




  1. I LOVE those cards! But I hope you feel better :)

  2. If your thyroid doesn't respond to you after this post, then it's truly not deserving of you. I hope you feel better and the thyroid starts behaving. *hugs*

    BTW--I loved your Jay Cutler post. I saw that he was up and walking around LA with his MTV reality show girlfriend. Yeah, not exactly the best way to endear yourself with fans, Jay. The whole thing reminded me of Tony Romo playing golf soon after an injury. Just doesn't sit well with fans, you know? :/

  3. I don't know... those thyroids can be tricky bastards. :)

    Hope it works out... -J
