It astounds me that peope STILL don’t know what their disease is

How in the hell can someone live their life in this day and age, having a disease and NOT know anything about it?  I get so irritated with people that are just plain stupid.  I mean really?  You’re already on the damn internet posting shit on Facebook, use Google and do some damn research!

And my God!  I swear the next person that tells me they have a brother, cousin, uncle, boyfriend’s sister’s bestfriend’s niece that has Hyper/Hypothyroidism I might just scream.  Hyperthyroidism is NOT Graves Disease any more than Hypothyroidism is Hashimotos Diease!  Each causes Hyper or Hypothyroidism, but are autoimmune disorders.  Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are not autoimmune diseases…hell they are not even diseases.  Graves disease NEVER goes away.  He will always have Graves disease until the day he dies.  Always.  Forever and ever.

Maybe I am just being a bitch.  We went to the new Doctor’s office today.  Did we get to see the doctor?  Nope  We got a physician’s assistant.  She was lovely and very knowledgeable and I would have loved it had she been the doctor, but she wasn’t.  There are no appointments for the doctor until October, and the office?  It was nasty.  Dirty, old, disorganized and I felt like I needed a bath after we left.  It wasn’t a great experience.  It pissed me off.  We will not go back.
