Ok hive mind: can you save the day and rescue me from serving my guests a horrible drink? I went to the liquor store with the intention to make one drink… the guy convinced me bruto w/ tonic water and orange zest was the cats meow. I went for it. My response (barf) but ain’t it pretty?
What you got for me to save the day?
Time for the Semi-annual Thyroid Cancer PSA:
Thyroid cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in our country at around 68k new cases per year (I’m not sure if that includes others kinds of thyroid disorders)
This is a love letter to those who deal with thyroid issues, and those who love or like people with thyroid issues. I was, once again, after 15 years of not having a thyroid, reminded (because it’s so easy to forget when you don’t have one) how maddening it can be when you experience “symptom creep.”
Every year or so, on no predetermined schedule, my body says, “Woah woah woah. You mean you’re giving me a PILL to replace a body part? Fuck you.” And the meds kind of stop working. That’s when I’m lucky: if the result is so strong that I can actually notice the change. But usually, (aka 10 times out of 10), the body is more passive aggressive, subtle in it’s denial: and that’s what I call “symptom creep,” because the symptoms creep up on you so slowly that you get used to them before you recognize that that there is a thief in the house. My symptoms show up in not being able to find the words I want when I’m speaking, tears drop if a pin drops (plz don’t make me watch commercials, I’ll need a Kleenex box), and something between a thumping heartbeat in my ears, to the difference between being hopping out of bed when I wake up, and requiring 20 minutes to wake up. Often times the people around me will be like, “oh yeah, me too, we all have memory problems.” And I kind of want to smack them silly, and say it’s not fucking normal to not be able to remember what you had for lunch yesterday, or that you spend 5 minutes trying to find a word that you always use. But when enough people say that while watching you struggle, you forget that your brain function is tied to a pill, and theirs hopefully isn’t, and you should never listen to these people who are trying to make you feel better when some part of you is trying to wave a red flag.
The thing is: not one of these things is so crazy that it would send a red alert. I’ve gotten used to explaining to people in my inner circle about the tears. “Please don’t take those seriously, they’re not real.” The way I understand it is that lets say our emotions are 1-10, and lets say that you can control your emotive capacity (what you choose to show people what you are feeling) when you are between 1-8. When the meds aren’t 100%, my tears start flowing at a 1.5, at the moment when my system is still considering if I am not 100% thrilled with the moment. It’s beyond obnoxious to have your emotions betray what you feel before you even know, let alone have decided if you want to share them.
Here’s your script:
If someone who is actively using their brain complains of memory problems, loss of their quick wit, word recall, or anxiety when faced with organizational tasks (taxes excluded), you say: “have you thought of getting your thyroid checked?”
If a physically active person mentions they don’t wake up as fast as they once did, you say: “hmm! Sounds worthy of getting your thyroid checked!”
And if you’ve noticed that a friend who has a generally positive outlook on the world but gets tears at the drop of a hat: don’t project that they can’t handle the 6th mass extinction, you say, “hey, I’ve noticed you don’t seem like yourself. Have you thought about getting your thyroid checked?”
I’m not wanting to make a hypochondriac out of you, just help our greater community understand a pervasive issue that takes so many offline.
I share all of this…because every year I go to my dr with the same damn symptoms, and every year, he has to change my prescription by changing the kind of cocktail of T3 & T4, increase my meds, or change types of meds altogether, so we can trick my body into believing it isn’t missing a critical body part. It’s amazing a couple of pills can replace a body part.
Thanks for entertaining this PSA.
I think so many of us (at least I am) are so quick to try to make people feel better that we are missing the smoke signal when it is sent. This could be about thyroid, or it could be about climate change. My bigger point: Stop trying to make people feel better when something is wrong and fucking listen. Wonder with your loved one about what isn’t working.
Isn’t that ironic. Trying to make people feel better exaserbates the situation. The metaphor about our state of the world is so glaring I don’t even need a thryoid to see it.
You would think by now I would be able to catch these symptoms. And I wish I could. But so far, symptom creep has snuck on me every time. And while each symptom seems like its no big deal, they’re even more that I haven’t bothered you with becuase I’m only willing to be but so vulnerable here, and it becomes a big fucking deal when they all add up and you’re spending 60% of your energy TRYING to function, rather than just functioning. It’s the difference between walking into a room and being able to turn the light all the way on, or having a dimmer stuck on low. And it can all by fixed almost overnight with a little fucking pill. Absolutely maddening to someone who prefers to stay 100,000 light years from the prescription big pharm world. My point is: if you have thyroid issues, make monitoring your symptoms your business (you’re welcome app creator for that idea). And if you love someone without a thyroid, listen when they start speaking to what they don’t know how to say. Or maybe my greater point is it’s ok that you are uncomfortable with other people’s discomfort, just know that our collective capacity to ignore the signals and attempt to make everything ok no matter how crazy has a heafty price tag. And why not just start listening and inquiring more before jumping to “it’s ok.” Sorry for all the swearing. #nothavingathyroidmademedoit Shoot. Now what’s the name of the thing that you stand on when you want to make a point? Cause I’m ready to step off now.

Oregon Eclipse Gathering is official- Aug 21, 2017
Awakening from the dream of the Separate self
- My brother Jason Doig and I set forth on a visionary journey to the Pacific Northwest. From where I stand today, with my tribe, there is nothing more alluring then the phenomena of a Total Solar Eclipse. One part sublime, one part mystical, and one part mathematical, a Total Solar Eclipse is the epitome of the material world presenting an experience within our conscious that unlocks the mind, body, and spirit and demonstrates the divine intelligence of mother nature’s cosmology. Aug 21 is my mother’s birthday, how symbiotic that my queen LEO Lioness mother shares the same date of this Powerful display. If you know me, then you are aware of my beliefs of our current paradigm and cosmology, and where we stand on this infinite motionless plane of existence… I am in complete awe as I project the image, energy, and vibration of myself standing among 60,000 brothers and sisters in pure meditation as we witness first hand this spectacular admission to the intelligence of our higher and inner worlds. Nothing is random about any moment, we are awake, alive, eternal. Chervin
Knowledge of life in the astral world leads us to a conclusion of fundamental importance, namely that the physical world is the product of the astral world.

Put down that fruit smoothie- why are you craving all that fructose/sugar? Eating whole non hybridized fruit when your system is running optimally is one thing, but to constantly be feeding a system that’s completely out of balance in all levels is a recipe for disaster, and more than likely you are being programmed by a dark frequency from within.
We humans set a premium on our own free will and independence … and yet there is a shadowy influence we are failing to recognize. Parasites have perfected the art of manipulation to an incredible degree. So are they influencing us? It’s more than likely.
We may think we’re independent, capable individuals, calling the shots in our lives from a place of personal freedom, but a new breed of research offers a somewhat terrifying counter argument to this belief. Incredibly, microbes can have a profound effect on our personalities and behavior — and even cause us to be more accident prone.
While quite a bit of focus has been on the gut microbiome — and how it shapes our overall cognitive and mental health — recent discoveries have led scientists to believe this influence extends to viruses and parasites as well. Which brings us to the question: are these microscopic creatures controlling our behavior without us knowing about it?
Spent the day with my mom. We had breakfast, lunch, an afternoon nap, followed by some cafecito. At 5:00pm she disappears into her bedroom and re-appears like this.. keys in hand, her new wine and cheese pack that I bought her flung over her shoulder. In Spanish I asked her, “Where are you going mom?” “I’m going to pick up my friend Ana Carolina Acuna and we’re heading to the Hollywood bowl.” . This woman makes me smile so much. Her spirit is absolutely incredible. I mean she is 80 years old!! I just love her. It’s the simple things in life that warm my heart the most. So blessed to have her as my mother.
