  • Dear Lotus,

    I love you. Not in that way that’ll make both our husbands get excited, but in that, “I really, really, really admire you and have become a HUGE fan of yours and I want you to hang in there and know there’s a whole lot of people like me who are your cheerleaders. Only we don’t wear miniskirts… we wear sweatpants and oversized t-shirts and instead of pom poms we have any variation of adult beverage in our hands” way.

    Worst case scenario, you lose all your hair, then get a tattoo of a nipple on the back and have a 365-days-a-year Boobie-Thon.

    As kick-ass funny as that would be, I’d rather the Health Care Industry pull their collective head out and fix you.

    Dear Lotus,
    Thank you for making me laugh and cry all at once. I’m broken too, and no one seems to know what’s wrong – and I’ve just been put on *another* waiting list. I am done waiting.

    But if I have to wait, I’m glad I at least get to read these glimpses of your funny, random, painfully real life between the teetering, towering piles of not-okay that periodically threaten to overwhelm me. Count me in on the virtual group hug that’s heading your way…

    Thank you. I loved it!! The hasimoto’s – waaay funny – make mine the grave’s disease – same family, same sorta symptoms, well, except the bug eyes. But they went back in! To add to your frantic, keep an eye on your kids. Too many times to the toilet or drinking too much, take the to the doc and insist on diabetes test. Hate to break it to you but hasi and diab are the same family of disease.

    Keep making us laugh and live vicariously through you!

    Dear Gluten,
    You make me bloated like a puffer fish, tired as marathoner, and as angry as a demon. But I still love you and what you can do with a pizza crust. Love/hate, win/lose, in/out. Can’t we just get along?

    Lotus, try to enjoy every birthday. It’s one more year for celebrate all you have been given. Good luck for good health.

    We learned about Hashimoto’s and other thyroid conditions in class last month. I got teary for a moment because I thought about what the textbook didn’t say, knowing that it makes my friend suffer so.

    It’s tragic (forgive my soapbox here) that people have made so many advances and supposed breakthroughs, and all we’ve come up with to treat our aches are more pain pills with side effects as bad as the original symptoms.

    And for the rest of it, I agree totally. It’s way cool that I met another woman who enjoys farts like I do. Perhaps other letters to be written would be thank you’s to those who allow farts to exist in abundance ie, the carbonated beverage industry, the elements nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur, intestinal flora, flabby buttcheeks, beans, cow’s milk, eggs, cruciferous vegetables, and notably, Mr. Methane, who is a genius.

    But I digress.

  • Read this book. It is absolutely wonderful. http://www.amazon.com/Living-Well-Hypothyroidism-Doctor-Doesnt/dp/0380808986

    Also, make sure they are giving you the right dose. A few years ago they changed the levels for women. They are now much lower than they were, but not every doctor knows that.

    Hope you don’t mind unsolicited advice.
