JUN 24, brief saga: anagram swarms














 

 For the purpose of this blog, a 'brief saga' is defined as a poem, usually narrative, but occasionally expository, that tell its story in at least 15 lines. Most commonly, the format involves three stanzas in limerick form, constituting a single submission to the online humor site 'Omnificent English Dictionary iLimerick Form'. On the OEDILF site, rigorous standards for content and format are involved in a collaborative editing process that may take several weeks to over a year. 

 Generally, OEDILF has not been enormously welcoming of multi-verse submissions, but Giorgio Coniglio has persisted, and there are now over 70 of these multi-verse poems feature in his 'Author's Showcase'. The  OEDILF number for each accepted multiverse poem is shown here on the slide with its first verse. We have been blog-publishing these poetic adventures here monthly.

JUN 20, organic brain poetry: hypothyroid depression


HYPOTHYROID DEPRESSION


You're depressed and withdrawn, so retractive,

Since your thyroid gland's gone rarefactive.

Body functions slow, too.

But, the best test for you —

TSH, it's sky-high — still reactive.

Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

Authors' Note: By far the most common cause of thyroid hormone deficiency or hypothyroidism (historically known by the moniker myxedema for a type of puffy swelling and rash in the legs) is progressive destruction of normal hormone-producing tissue by the process of colloid degeneration. Owing to the metabolic role of thyroid hormone, most body functions slow as a result of this deficiency, resulting, for example, in a slow pulse and weight gain. For the brain in general, somnolence and depression may be accompanied in extreme cases by a derangement of mentation known as 'myxedema madness'.

Under normal circumstances, the anterior pituitary gland, stimulated by the hypophysis, an adjacent brain control center, plays a key role as the 'master gland' in regulating hormone production. When the thyroid gland is flagging, the master gland increases its production of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), a messenger that is excreted into the bloodstream, targeted to increase the peripheral gland's production to normal levels. Fortunately, the robust sensing mechanism in the hypophysis and pituitary, not impaired by the metabolic slowdown elsewhere, produces high levels of blood TSH so reliably that a simple blood test can be used as the best test for the hypothyroid state.
