I have a hard time putting in words what I want to say. Graves has taken away the me I have always known. I was very organized, alert, whitty, very patient, and positive until Graves. I felt like I was on top of the world, I had tons of friends and was very bright. Nothing really got me down or got in my way. Graves came into my life and changed me. I am so easily defeated, I feel anxiety and anger every day! I cry a lot and to be honest I get confused very easily. I feel cloudy headed and can only take directions if they are told very slowly. I feel like I am lesser than others around me because I am often the only one who doesn't catch on or needs to read instructions again. I type much slower and forget how to spell everything. My memory is totally shot and I feel very hopeless. People at work comment more and more that I am a dig bat and don't listen. I just want to crawl into a ball and cry. It hurts so bad but I put on a smile and laugh it off. No one knows how personally I take it. I spend each moment of my life hoping the old me will return. I am to the point where it is hard to drive because I can not concentrate and everything distracts me.I excersise all the time, eat healthy, and stay very busy to pick myself up. I have a wonderful job in sales, I own a house by the beach, have two great dogs, an amazing set of friends, family, and the best guy in the world. I have evrything but myself. Please share with me how you all deal with this and ANYTHING that has worked for you. I am determined to find a way to stop the progression of my disease. I have even considered making a career change into a feild that will help me and others live with Graves. It is eating me up and taking so much from me. I am so sad and so angry and I really need advice and help. Thank you so much!

Mine refuses to get his crap out of my house, won't even talk to me or reply to my email or texts, and we've been divorced almost a year. I won't just chuck it or sell it, because I want to "keep my side of the street clean", as my lawyer used to say. I glanced over the 25 pages of motion paperwork, and haven't looked...
I live on support only, a very small amount. I'm 65. I have had to have a roommate (just a friend) in order to live someplace. My daughter just got married and bought a house.
