I’m feeling a bit angry at the world right now. I really thought things were looking up for me. Then you spring this on me. Don’t you think I’ve been through enough?

Got the call today. I’ve got an overactive hyperthyroid. I’ve seen what it’s done and doing to my mom. I’ve seen/heard what she’s gone through. I don’t want to go through it.

There’s this one treatment: Radioiodine.

It’s a radiation pill or liquid. When you take it, you must lock yourself up and have no contact with anyone for several days to a week. I’m almost positive I have to do that.

I don’t know how I’d be able to handle being without my girls and husband for that long. And to be alone for that long, I’m just about ready to start crying.

Thanks again.
