About

Thank you for visiting Thyroid Lost.

I developed Graves Disease at the young reproductive female adult age of 25. I obviously did not spend enough time in health class, when I was told I had Thyroid Disease, I said “What…What is that?” I was the young mother of a two small children ages 5 & 2. I worked full time and lived in the Columbia River Gorge Mountains in Beautiful Oregon.

My Graves Disease was so advanced, I only had 2 choices…Surgery or Radioactive Iodine (RAI). I choose RAI. Less than 6 months later my Thyroid was completely destroyed. I have a severe form of Hypothyroidism. I have no Thyroid.

My life has not been easy, I have suffered greatly, my family has suffered. This is the story of my journey, resources and facts I’ve learned along the way. This blog will a difficult read at times due to the real nature of this disease and the difficulties it has and can cause.
