I will add the link on my link page. I encourage you to look them up and join them. If you are from Ireland you most join them. You have support in your own back yard. They have a really great website. I have recieved some great Idea's for topics from them.
A suggestion was to have a GD Coffee Break on March 17. I don't know about you, but I am always up for a GD Coffee Break. Who's with me? To refreash your memories. Especially those of you with Brain Fog. And for those of you who want to know how my little GD Coffee Break started, here's the story.
The GD Coffee Break was not a planned event. It just turned out that way. I like to believe it was just ment to be. One day in August of 2009 I mentioned in post to another friend with Graves' Disease, that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. That I was going to take a "Coffee Break" from my Graves' Disease. I was going to just kick it to the corner while I sat and had a nice relaxing cup of coffee. Two of my Graves' Disease friends wanted to join me. It would have been nice . But one was in Australia and the other was in Ireland. So, I said I was having my Graves' Disease COffee Break at 10:00 am on Saturday. I told them to have one at 10:00 am their time on Saturday. If Claire from Ireland joined me at 10:0 am my time it would have been about 5:00pm her time. So, 10:00am it was. Other people were following my our post's and wanted to join us.
On Saturday August 22, 2009 GD Coffee Break was born. 127 people from 13 states in the USA, Canada, England, Australia and Ireland had a GD Coffee Break. In 2010 "Dear Thyroid" joined us in a Thyvent as they called it for another GD Coffee Break. This year I am honored to have "My Thyroid Support" out of Ireland join us for a GD Coffee Break in honor of their 2nd Anniversary. So, join us with a GD Coffee Break on March 17, 2012. Are you asking what you have to do? Well that is the sweetness of the whole thing. The point is to do nothing or anything. On March 17th, have a GD Coffeee Break any time any where, for a few minutes or all day. It is after all "Your" GD Coffee Break. You don't have to run, walk, bike or raise money . You don't even have to register, but I would like to know what you did, where your from.
This is not about the Coffee. Some of us can't drink it. It is about the Break from your disease or the support of those that have it.
So, come on people let's kick this disease into the corner on March 17. We need a GD Coffee Break.
To see what others did in the past read my Coffee Break People page and Toast. I love the one about the story of the man with the 8 year old son.
I leave you today with this: "Anything I can do we can do better."
