How my Life Was Hijacked by Graves Disease and Thyroid Eye Disease

Why can’t Happiness be in my Vocabulary?

It first started with Graves’ disease. My symptoms became most apparent during my only child’s last two years of high school. Overcome by feelings of nervousness, muscle weakness, heat sensitivity and shaky hands, the symptoms were beginning to change how I interacted with the world around me.

My “new” normal was starting to wreak havoc on my relationships with family and friends, too. I was becoming increasingly withdrawn and easily agitated. My daughter’s typical teenage remarks were causing me to become infuriated, when I would have previously shrugged them off. My actions were becoming impulsive and out-of-character, and this was when I knew that my personality, my emotions and my health were out of control.
