Hello, I’m not sure if this is where I come for advice but I would appreciate having someone contact me for support. I’ve had Grave’s for six years and in my opinion, I feel terrible after all the so called treatments and replacement drugs. My health care provider just doesn’t seem to understand that this disease has only added to my other medical problems..ie “MD”. I tell my Doctor that my eyesight is getting so bad that I can’t read anything without reading glasses and that I have such bad headaches, almost on a daily bases. Paying a lot of money for health Ins. and I just don’t feel like I’m getting good treatment and the Doctors just seem as through they don’t have the time to talk! I don’t want to drag this out online but I truly need support as I have no family and my life is all but a memory of medical problems which sudden began 12 yrs. ago. With Muscular Dystrophy, travel is very hard so I’m rather isolated from consulting with other doctors but at this point I’m not sure I want any more drugs or treatments as all these procedures have caused so many side-effects that somedays I just pray it will all just end!
Hello, Have you heard of positive thinking? I used to think (and still do) like you do. The best thing you can do is start thinking better. I personally think that Grave’s affects people who are on the negative side of life. In other words, laughter and happiness (although easier said than done) are the best pills for any disease. Fell free to e-mail me personally and I will be your support as you can be mine. Never give up hope. Pegah, P.S. I, too, have Grave’s… it’s definately NOT fun!
