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.
