    Hi Lisa and others….

    Funny you should ask about blood donation. The local blood bank called last night and I asked that very question…am I
    eligible to donate. I’ve had Graves for six years…was radiated right
    away and have been on replacement thyroid since. The woman asked the
    doctor and he said “ long as you had stable levels for a year.”
    She also looked it up in their manual and it agreed with his assessment.

    So…roll up your sleeves gang…..

    By the way…I have been a lucky one and so far have had few bad symptoms…
    nothing I can’t cope with. Hair thinned for awhile…and weight gain…
    a bummer for sure, but, oh well….

    good luck to you all…your stories are very touching…..
