In case you haven’t heard, Oprah has a thyroid condition. Tada! Could this finally be the answer to her weight problem? A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with a thyroid condition and yes, she looks FABULOUS! I’ve never thought that she looked bad but wow did her treatment do a number of wonderful things for her. She also eats a lot better and exercises more. Well, right away I thought, maybe that’s the reason why I’ve gained so much weight the past 4 years.
Sadly, my doctor and my blood tests disagree. After hearing Oprah’s guest doctor, Dr. Northrup, I know I have a thyroid condition!
Northrup says, “In many women thyroid dysfunction develops because of an energy blockage in the throat region, the result of a lifetime of ‘swallowing’ words one is aching to say”. Sounds like me, right? NOT ANY MORE! Lately, I just don’t care as much. My problem is that I tell other people how I feel and not the person that I have the issue with. I really have been working on it but as a result, somehow I lost someone that I thought was my friend. As a result of losing that “friend”, I also lost a few other friends. Maybe it’s because I didn’t really say what I meant to say.
“In the name of preserving harmony, or because these women have learned to live as relatively helpless members of their families or social groups, they have learned to stifle their self-expression,” says Dr. Northrup. Well, here it is; YMCA “Sweetie,” you are a spoiled brat with little to no creativity. You use people, you copy people, and you steal their ideas, their traditions and their livelihood. When you’ve exhausted them with your constant whininess about your pathetic “problems” and woes and you are done criticizing them to death, you stomp all over them, pack your bags with all that you’ve taken and walk out. I’ve waited for almost a year now for you to return my phone calls and have you? No. You are now deleted from my cell phone and thus, my life. Ciao!
“It’s no coincidence that so many more women than men have thyroid problems. Thyroid disease is related to expressing your feelings…” Thanks Dr. Northrup…I feel skinnier already!
