    I think that we’ve mourned our family that we’ve lost. We can talk about them now without crying and can remember the good times. I know this is a part of life but it’s still hard when it happens and especially when there are so many in a short amount of time.

    This might sound like a stupid question but is Graves that big of a deal or as scary as it sounds or am I reading more into this? I even had someone tell me that they looked it up and that it wasn’t that big of a deal so not to worry about it. If it is a bigger deal how do you respond to people that think it’s not?

    Like I said before it’s all been a whirlwind for me. I was suppose to have surgery on November 11, was at the hospital, IV in the arm, OR ready when the anastegeologist (sp) called it off after having my uptake and scan and blood work faxed there. He said that there was a real possiblity that I could have a heart attack, stroke, or die because of a thyroid storm if we did surgery that day because I’m not on any meds yet. I wasn’t scared to have surgery before that, I actually wanted it to get rid of the pain (I have a cyst the size of an orange on my ovary so they were going to remove that, do a D & C, and biopsies) but now I’m afraid to ever have surgery again. They said that I can’t have it until my endo gives me clearance but even then I’m scared. So on top of all the symptoms of Graves I’m in pretty much constant pain from the cyst. AAAGGHHH!!!! I’m ready for a vacation :lol:

    I said in the beginning that I was probably going to have a lot of questions, I didn’t lie <img decoding=” title=”Smile” /> I really appreciate you taking the time to answer them for me though.
