    To me, it’s just ignorance aside from being cruel. Most people don’t know what Graves’ disease is and don’t even know what the heck a thyroid is. So what can we do? I could get nasty and tell them off or just leave the room. tough call. My relatives don’t know anything about my illness. I dont’ tell anyone. I am lucky I do not have eye involvement at this time, but if I did, I wouldn’t tell them anything. They are too ignorant to understand.

    My goal is to educate people. If you mention diabetes, every body knows. Graves’? what’s that? I am sick of it.
