Living with graves disease has been an interesting journey. It has taught me how stong I am and how hard it is for me to reach out to others. When my eyes changed due to graves I became obsessive about sunshades I have about 25 pairs. I was and still am ashamed of my eyes. I thought after 5 surgeries my eyes would look normal again not the case. I'm still trying to accept this . I know how blessed I am but my saying has always been the eyes are the windows to the soul. I know that I have come a long way since my first surgery now I'm trying to live with the change I know I will with time.
