Google has made medicine easier to understand, and has been a godsend for someone who doctors have secretly wanted to shut up , for years.

This is a collection of thyroid knowledge nuggets, collected over the years. I have tried to put everything here. Sometimes it may appear to be too much. :-)

Comments, brickbats, tomatoes (non-BT) and eggs (non-BT) welcome.

Shoes most unwelcome.

An Ode to ye olde thyroid.....

An Ode to ye olde thyroid.....

Butterfly Shaped like a butterfly she sits within the neck
Wanting only to share her beauty throughout the body and awakening all cells

Yet faithful to her messenger she will evolve with the information sent
She can race forth spinning your entire being into a frenzy

Awakening you in the midst of the night saturated with sweat and palpitating heart
Or she can lull you to sleep and make you feel so melancholy or down right

Depressed and angry for no particular reason
Whatever the effects her presence will be felt by every part of your being

When feeling fine and neither up nor down do not think that she has forgotten you
For at this time she simply sits on her throne, her wings spread wide, as she escorts
You through your journey

There have been cells that have turned against her, most of them without the strength
To fully conquer her fortress
Other have penetrated her and have caused her great harm

But she continues to evolve with the force of such intrusions while desperately
Attempting to maintain her exalted position

She will fight to save her fortress and keep her chamber safe, but eventually she
Will give in to the information she receives and must subjugate her will to the will
Of the informer

Although her wings may be clipped, she is still a beautiful butterfly, she remains
Exalted, meaning only well for the body she inhabits and loyal to her messenger
