      My good news is that my latest checkup showed my thyroid levels in excellent shape, so I’m still very much in remission. Plus, my eyes have gone back in by 1mm.

      Bad news is the anxiety is still raging. My family doc says it’s definitely in my office visit with him, he thought I was going to jump out of my skin a couple of times. The other night I woke in the middle of the night in a full blown panic attack. Now where the hell did all this come from?? When I was taking Tapazole for 2 1/2 years, my other Graves symptoms subsided, but my anxiety continued. It got better at times but always came back. My endo wouldn’t address it, so finally I found another, right when I went into remission. I guess it was two separate things happening at once.

      The good news is that I have a great family doc who is helping me deal with it. I’m taking .25mg of Xanax at night and am sleeping better and much calmer during the day. I’m afraid to take it during the day because it’ll make me too sleepy to work.

      I hope no one else goes through this. If your anxiety continues to be bad, don’t let it keep on. Find help.

      Thanks to all of you for your support!!!
