      Hi Paula,

      You wanted to see the light at the end of tunnel. I am sure
      there are a lot of people who get the RAI, take thyroid
      replacement medicine and are just fine after that. I was
      one of those people until I got the eye troubles. But for
      me even that is getting way better.

      This Support Group Bulletin Board is sponsored by the NGDF.
      If you click on the green logo at the top of the page it
      will take you to their site. And the page before this one
      has some neat reference sites and books.

      I kinda remember how I was feeling after I took the RAI in
      95. It did not seem that long until I was doing ok again.
      The key for me was acceptance. It took a while but I can
      accept where I am today having this disease.

      Michele B.

        Hi Paula:

        I think that all of us have been where you are right now. I remeber
        when I was first diagnosed I was so sooo happy to actually put a
        name to my disease. I mean, before the diagnosis, I just thought
        that I was crazy or something akin. Then I was nuked, then a year
        later I was nuked again! It took awhile for me to feel “normal”
        and a little while longer to feel “good.” The point is, I never
        thought that I would be able to face a day without pain. I am
        feeling so good now that there are days when I don’t even think
        about the graves. Hang tight, it does get better!
