I Have Been MIA

So where to start???  well alot has happened since my last blog a million years ago lol.
My health has declined I was recently told I have Graves disease and Sinus Tachycardia, I lost my job in july turns out to be a blessing because my Endocrinologist said I was close to a Thyroid storm... meaning stroke or heartattack = death. I knew I was feeling horrible but refused to go to the doctor for years. At this point the doctor put me on a medication to put my thyroid to sleep she said to give it a year and she is hoping by then I will go into remission, If I don't go into remission then I will do radioactive therapy to kill my thyroid this can take upto 2 treatments. Yesterday I had an allergic reaction to the medication after 3 weeks and I had hives that made my face,ear and head look deformed... no joke! I had a fever and had to go to the hospital where they IV'ed me with a double dose of benedrly, steroids and antihistamine. I do feel better today, I will be starting a new med. in a few days. My husband is having internal problems with alot of different test ,scans, ultrasounds but everything keeps coming back normal however he is in desperate pain around his gallbladder area. My oldest daughter lost her job before Thanksgiving so you can imagine the stress we are under. So to top it off my 17 yr. old son quit school he is a junior I think so much stress with so many different things going on has taken him to the top and he just needs a break. I am signing him up to home school I think that will be better right now under the circumstances. So this must seem like a down post... I'm sorry I just had to get on here I feel so bad not keeping up with something I committed to. I will try to post more often depending on my days right now this issuse is affecting my brain but my doctor assures me I am not crazy even though I feel I am its just this graves disease. My family is trying to do what we can to get out of the city my hubby took a second job a few months ago its just part time but it helps right now and we would love to get self reliant on a peice of small land. I hope you all are doing well.... God Bless you all....

I found your blog from somebody else's bloglist. I'm sorry to hear that you've been having a tough time, but wanted to tell you about a friend of mine who has Graves disease. She has a blog ' Just Humans Being' and can be found at

She has written about Graves disease and you may find something useful.
