I have been gone 2 weeks on a Thyroid Coffee Break Road trip.  May 20th I was at Starbucks in Denver, Colorado for World Thyroid Awareness Day.  We had a nice day and a nice turne out with People from Graves' Disease, TED and Thyca.  Plus many people coming in and out of Starbucks stopped and listened in on part or all of my speech.  We all had a good time sharing and getting to know each other.  It is always nice to talk face to face with another person with a Thyroid Disease who knows exactly what you are talking about.  As I was talking I saw so many of you nodding yes.  The looks on your faces told me you were so glad that somebody was saying what you were feeling somebody understood what your life was like.  Than there were those that for the first time maybe understood what a loved one was going through every day.  It is not easy having a Thyroid Disease or living with somebody that has a Thyroid Disease.  But, as in my speech ...it is all about understanding and awareness.
It was and is still hard for me to get up in front of people and talk.  And niot so long ago it was second nature to me to get up and make a speech.  I had done it so many times before in my job and in other organizations.  But Graves' Disease took so much of my confidence away from me and I am fighting to get it back.  I will not let this disease control my life for one more minute.  I will acknowledge it only because I have no choice in the matter.  I do have a Thyroid Disease that is a fact.  But it is still my life and I will do with it as I want.  It is harder than it use to be to do what I want and I am very limited in what I can and can not do.  But that does not mean I will not keep trying and fighting.  And I guess that is the message I want to put across to everybody in this fight with me.  we have to keep trying and fighting if we want any kind of life.  It is a Holiday and I have things to do like many of you.  But I will be here in a few days to tell you more about upcoming projects I have in the fire and other things that may interest you all/

I think that such bike racks simplify our life. And the price is rather low for such convenience. And especially the most lucky are workers of public spaces and qualifying nonprofit organizations. Because racks are free for them.

What a shame! I was excited for my review of watchesup.ru – they have a great looking site and a decent staff. It wasn’t until my Panerai replica arrived that I realized what I had gotten into. I opened up the box and the lens was in pieces! And the box was in perfect condition, so I know it didn’t happen in shipping, which begs the question: who ships out broken replica watches? Apparently, these guys!
