So, my thyroid has been pretty messed up the past few years. It’s contributed to my body temperature fluctuations, weeeiiiird periods, tachycardia, and a host of other good things BUT it’s never really given me any cause for alarm. Until last night. My neck swelled up pretty suddenly about month ago (or more, who knows), and while I thought it was strange, I didn’t really pay much attention to it (spoiler alert: Aldous is TERRIBLE at taking care of herself). I made an appointment with my family doctor and decided to wait it out.
Last night my neck started to hurt pretty bad so we went to emerg to check it out. They did an EKG and (surprise, surprise) my heart was off the chart. Nurse took some blood, and after determining I cant wait to see the endocrinologist, checked me in. Blood pressure was all over the damn place (133/50 for a bit, 105/90 a while later etc etc) and the doctor diagnosed me with hyperthyroidism (which I knew) and a lovely, ultra uber sexy goiter. (I hate everything about that fucking word, I don’t like to think about it, say it out loud, write it, type it. EW.).
5 hours and 8 vials of blood later and they send me home. At some point this week I’m having a radioactive uptake scan done and they’re going to figure out if the problems are my T3/T4 levels or an iodine deficiency, I’m gunning for the iodine because it can be treated with meds as opposed to more radiation therapy and/or surgery.
Last thing I want is for my thyroid to be removed.

Dec. 6 1989. My son was not yet born. It was the day of the Montreal Massacre. We came together as a nation, on CBC, in Parliament. We cared that these women lost there lives. That it was an act of misogyny.
As a nation we called for a gun registry. That gun registry is now…
A few weeks ago my japanese class did a gift exchange with our penpal class in japan and their box of stuff came in today. All of the gifts had really cute messages on yellow notes. This one was my favorite..
you do NOT owe your family a visit this holiday season. don’t let people, family or not, guilt you into spending time with them if they are toxic, make you uncomfortable, or are negative aspects in your life.
don’t feel guilty for protecting yourself and your mental health this holiday season.
Great reminder for this holiday season!!
LOOK AT ALL THE BUTT WIGGLES
SO MANY BUTT WIGGLES
Why is this rule 63 so…..good?
this is really cute!!!
Because instead if just “BEWBS” the artist actually took time to put in details in the characters in an original way.
Each girl isn’t the same body type and their personality come out through, not only expression but visual ques.
Like how they wear their bandannas. Mikie has a bow symbolizing child-like innocence. Raph’s is all torn up. and Leo’s is longer, drawing us to “the leader”.
Ironically, Donnie got the short stick. Aside from the tooth gap, she looks kinda plain.
anD THEY EVEN HAVE ALL DIFFERENT CHEST SIZES
Oh my gods, Raph’s thighs <3
omfg Donatello is the cutest thing wow.
They are all super pretty and splinter omg
I love that female splinter design
