I never realized how many other people actually suffer from this disease. I am currently 18 years
old. I was diagnosed just after my 16 birthday, because I fainted in school. It turns out that my heart rate was anywhere from
150-200 beats per minute. My life has changes 100% since the diagnosis. I have had 2 radioactive iodine treatments. The second finally destroyed
most of my thyroid. I am now happily taking synthroid once a day. I also had the weight gain instead of weight loss. I wasn’t very happy about it,
but you get what you get. In some aspects, this disease has ruined my life. I’d like to hear more about all of you! I can be reached at: heinemja@nsu001.northern.edu
