Hi Angie, We understand what you are going through, Angie and offer this suggestion: you may want to ask your doctor about being put on a low dose of anti-depressants to help calm you down so you can deal with yourself and your children. This is the course we usually recommend to people who ask about the manical side of graves. You may only need them to get you through the rough spots. Your doctor can determine that one. I know of many, many graves’ patients who use them either daily or every other day. I wish you wellness and hope this advice helps you.
