Now this is a story all about how

My life got flipped-turned upside down

And I’d like to take a minute

Just sit right there

I’ll tell you how I’ve been struggling

with a little Hashimotos despair

In my hometown Laredo born and raised

Different restaurants was where I spent most of my days

Chili’s, Mickey D’s, WhataChick’in all cool

Hitting up the dollar menu everyday after school

When all of the sudden, I got bloated, no good

Didn’t think to blame it on delicious food.

I got really bad one night and my mom got scared

“You’re going to the doctor in the morning,” my momma declared.

I went to the doctor, with no good news to hear.

The doctor’s charts said, I have Hashimoto’s, oh dear.

So I asked the doctor, “Yo, doc is this rare?”

He said, “Gluten– forget it.”

— “Yo, man that’s unfair.”

It’s been two years now without gluten, Hooray!

But now I’m back to square one; Feeling shitty as ever.

I looked at my health

Now I need to prepare

To take back my life and end this despair.
