      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.
      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.
