Grave's Disease

My thyroid specialist in Saskatoon called me today and moved my appointment up almost a full month. Now it is May 8th. The good part of that is that my appointment is sooner. The bad part of that is it means something is wrong. She thinks I may have Grave's Disease which is an autoimmune disease that causes hyperthyroidism amongst other things. My mom has this disease and it does have a large genetic component. I am not thrilled.

Ugh! Sorry to hear about that, but at least they are going to see you sooner. I will read up on it in a little bit! :(
