      Although I was diagnosed and treated for Grave’s Disease over 10 years
      ago, I still wonder what the long term affect will be on my health.

      My story is similar to all of yours – In the beginning,
      I was very, very depressed.
      I cryed every day and even considered suicide. I thought that I
      was losing my mind. My story ended with Iodine radiation pill,
      daily dosage of Synthroid,
      a divorce (my husband thought that I was making it up for
      attention), and a daily battle with my weight. Does anyone else
      have this same problem? I work out and watch what I eat, but I still
      cannot control my weight. During the time that I was treated, my weight
      was on a rollercoaster – unfortunately it stayed at the top.

      Also, I still have periods of depression. I do not know if this is
      related to having Grave’s Disease or if it is normal daily life.

      FYI- one doctor told me once to take only Synthroid, not the generic

      I would love to hear from someone who has lived with this for quite
      some time or if the people who have been recently diagnosed have
      any questions, perhaps I can give you some insight to my experiences.
