Hello, I have no idea if I am doing this right so if I get no response then I will continue as I am. I am newly diagnosed with Graves, having been very sick with the ups and downs of the disease I have so many questions. Will I be able to work, what is the life expectany, will I have to have surgery, will I ever feel normal again? I don't knowwhich is worse at this moment, knowing or the not knowing. I am a single mom with 2 at home, and self employed. Just don't know what to expect.

Hi Kadi,

 

I am moving your post to the "Forum Topics" section, where more people will see it. Welcome to the Board!
Yvonne, in remission

Hi Wolf, and welcome. Yes, the discussion thread is the place to post most questions--plus it's at the top, where more people will see it, lol. I'll move your post over there now. Your post was fine, just in the wrong place.

 

Let us know a little about your where you are on the Graves' journey and we will be glad to help. You can also learn a lot of useful information at the Thyroid 101 section.

 

As for kids and computers, I think our role is to give them the computer and theirs is to show us how to use it!

 

best wishes,
Yvonne, PTU 2002-2005, remission since then
