Thank You, Friends

Tomorrow is the big day, the day I’ve been dreading for months now. I’m totally scared and I can think of a million other things I’d rather be doing but hey, you have to do what you have to do.

I just wanted to say thank you to all my friends and family who have supported me throughout this horrible time. I appreciate every single one of you. To the friends who have messaged me, texted me, offered to hang out with me, friends who have offered to help out after the surgery, and just be there for me, I love you so much. And to the friends I’ve met through support groups, Instagram, and Reddit, I might not know you personally but you’ve helped more than you could ever know. 

I’m so thankful for Jeff. He has been amazing and has been to every one of my appointments. He has put up with my mental breakdowns, my worst thoughts, and my panic attacks. I REALLY couldn’t have done this without him.

I’ve learned a great deal over these past few months. How to push through, stay strong and knowing it’s okay to ask for help if you need it. If you don’t have a support group you will drive yourself insane.

It’s hard to comprehend tomorrow afternoon I won’t have a thyroid. It will be replaced with a tiny pill for the rest of my life. Life may or not be the same again. I’ll I can wish for is a speedy recovery and a healthy life afterwards. If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year is that don’t take your health for granted. Get regular check ups, take care of yourself, live everyday happy, don’t be negative towards people, be appreciative that you are alive and can see the world right now.

I could turn this post into a novel so I’ll stop myself now. I just want all my friends/family to know that they’re so appreciated and I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve said and done for me. You are all the best kind of people.
