    To the newly diagnosed:


    The best bet is to read all the posts. Then go to the support group page
    at and look at the National Graves Disease Foundations
    home page. Send a self addressed stamped envelope to the NGDF. Look under
    support groups to see if we have one in your state. If we don’t call the nearest
    one and see what is going on. Keep checking out the BB and sign up for the CHAT
    room if we don’t have a group near you. Keep the faith, keep a good sense of
    humor and you will get through this. But most of all realize you are not alone.
    We have all gone through this in one form or another. There are over three
    million people with Graves disease.
