    Rachel,
    Sorry for the dry humor on the orangatang jowls. It’s how i cope. Folks
    with Graves do go through some facial feature changes but not as bad as I kidded
    about. Now if your thyroid levels are dropping “DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE END OF THE
    MONTH!!!” to get to the doctor. the sooner they start the thyroid replacement the
    better yo will feel. Don’t try and tough it out. I did the same thing when my
    thyroid died and it took me months to get feeling better. Go to the Doc. It’s what
    we pay them for. The weight gain will start to taper off once you get your thyroid
    levels back to normal. Talk to your doc about a mild antidepressant to help through
    this period. I didn’t know about them when I went through it and they would have
    helped. Keep in touch.
    Regards,
    JAke :-)

    I agree Jake, so I called my Dr. Friday, and of course he was not available, so I plan to make an appt. asap and get labs drawn asap. Thanks for responding and caring.
