My Under-Active Thyroid AKA Mean Moth

Flaws by Bastille on Grooveshark

Today was pretty typical, minus the obnoxious sinusitis like allergy symptoms that are knocking the crap out of me!  Oh yeah, and the surprise letter I received from my doctor’s office which read:

I have just received your test results and I would like to share them with you:

We checked how well your thyroid gland was functioning.  Details as follows:

TSH: blah blah blah: Normal Range

FT4: blah blah blah: OUT OF RANGE


Ok, so I know I have been extraordinarily tired lately (maybe even borderline narcolepsy), and I realize I have put on a “little” bit of weight (being only 5’2″, every pound makes a difference), and really thought maybe I was going through some sort of depression for no reason whatsoever but THYROID???

When I went to the doctor and she suggested I get tested for a Thyroid problem, I secretly hoped that was the reason for my issues (but I really didn’t want that “hope” to come to fruition).  I even joked about it… Well, the jokes on me!  Yes folks, caught off guard standing in front of my mailbox, I opened the dreaded letter and the words “OUT OF RANGE” seemed a good 20 font sizes bigger than the rest.

My first instinct: Throw the letter in someone else’s mailbox and pretend you never saw it.

My second instinct: Kick the mailbox.

Reality Check: Deal with it head on and beat the crap out of the monster of an organ that resembles the dreaded moth, (yes, I understand all the medical info states butterfly instead of moth but this is my post) and then kick it to the curb.

The Positive: When I run out of things to write about, I can always tell you stories about the mean moth that lives inside me.
