RadioActive Iodine
by heather

Tomorrow afternoon I will be slightly radioactive. Yup, that's right, I'll have to take some radioactive iodine in hopes to regulate my hyperthyroid. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in 2001. I've fought with the thyroid symptoms since then. Some of the symptoms of a hyperactive thyroid are: irregular heart beat, shaky or weak muscles, nervousness, and increased body temperature. Hopefully after a few months, my thyroid will be back to normal and I won't be a human radiator anymore!
