A Dose of Sunshine

      As I try to pull myself out of the depression that chronic disease often provides us with, I realize the value of music and images to remind us of the things we love and the people we were before we were overrun with worry and burnout from a failing body.
     I have been surrounding myself with these things in order to take back control of my presiding mood. And I thought I would share some, I have come across lately, or pulled out of the recesses of my iPod to cheer me up. I hope it brings you a smile.

No Worries Mon, Everything Will Be Alright

     Over the past seven years, I have slid into the horrible habit of having a really bad attitude at work. I have become the 'I hate Mondays' kind of a person. In my defense it has been an incredibly hard seven years struggling with hyperthyroidism tearing every ounce of my energy and ravaging my body. Most mornings it was painful to get out of bed and took every bit of my concentration to stay upright.

   But now that my thyroid has been demolished thanks to Radioactive Iodine, my health has steadily increased to the point where waking up is no longer torture. And I have decided my new role in life. I want to be the VW Jamaican man, bringing sunshine and happiness to everyone he sees. It is who I have always been before my life got turned upside down by a tiny endocrine gland that decided to do her own thing and no longer listen to authority.


You know what this room needs? A smile. Who wants to come with I?
