A Metaphor

I have spent a year, at the bare minimum (but given some symptoms, possibly two or three) with Graves disease. It's annoying to sweat like a pig and be unable to wear long sleeves in the dead of winter. It's kind of nice to loose weight for no reason, but a little confusing. It's more than a little scary to be forever shaking and feeling close to a heart attack when not even thirty. And frankly, it's embarrassing to have a goiter. But these are not the things that made me miserable. What made me miserable was the fact that my hormones are going INSANE. And I feel like a crazy person at least 70% of the time.

Now I am taking methimazole, and I should be better very soon.

And I just found a metaphor for my life. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

[THE METAPHOR]

(Is Spock the methimazole?)

Giggles at the Shatner, alas all I can hear is "I have control!!!" from Cabin Pressure...

Sorry to hear about the Grave's disease, that can be a rough road. And yes, the medication will set things to rights, once the right dose is found.

Be well, my friend. Now I am off to stare at a computer screen for eight hours or so.

Gotta love Shatner. ;D

Yikes, though... I'm so sorry you've had to live with that. Really, really rough stuff. So glad you have an explanation, now, and hope that things will turn around soon! I hope the methimazole proves effective quickly.
