Dear Thyroid is an epistolary series, letters to our thyroids, beginning with Dear Thyroid, of course.

Started by three women, Katie, FreidaBee and Quinn, women whose butterfly glands betrayed them without notification, a memo would’ve been nice... Sans consent, they had their way with us in varying degrees and impacted our lives in different ways. Some are still healing, while others of us have already physically healed. Emotionally, well, that’s another story and the string that binds us, and the impetus for creating Dear Thyroid.

Openly, honestly, irreverently, humorously, loudly, inquisitively and whateverly, Dear Thyroid is comprised of love letters, hate letters and I-know-I'm-not-crazy-so-what-the-fuck-is-wrong-with-me letters, to our thyroids and to those that helped to heal and hurt us along the way.

Dear Thyroid is a sanctuary to commiserate and create awareness and to be there for each other. We'll invite experts for e-interviews to help us gain insight. We'll laugh a lot, cry a little and probably get angry as a mothah fuckah. Most importantly, we'll have each other to get through it and help new inductees into the dirty little secret that is The Thyroid Club.

Send us your hate letters, love letters or any Dear Thyroid yarns you wish to spin, all of them, we’ll publish each, and dish the hell out of them.

Hey ladies! I just found your blog and will add it to my reader. I just had my second thyroid cancer surgery a week ago to remove my lymph nodes. Thanks for blogging about this!
