|Yeah, that skeleton is me...|
Coincidentally it's September and September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month. Speaking of ThyCa. Can I just say that I don't mind the butterfly being the symbol of thyroid cancer - I get it - the thyroid resembles a butterfly. However, I really dislike the awareness ribbon colors which are teal and pink. Two of my least favorite colors. Blech. Is that bitchy and trivial? Probably so, but hey... just my opinion.
When looking at the CT image I stare at my thyroid area and try to pinpoint what spots are the calcification and can never figure it out. Thankfully it wasn't missed by the doctor! It's kind of weird looking at your own skeleton and then seeing the outer area of my body being so large back then. So much has changed in 5 years and all for the better. "New" body, improved health, getting married, moving South of Miami! If you asked me in 2010 where I would be in 5 years there's no way in hell I would have guessed any of that!!
