A few years ago, my family and I were at home chatting and then all of a sudden my great aunt began to stare at me in an alarming way. It was written all over her face. My mom asked her what was wrong. As she began to tell her, I thought she was kidding. Until my mom told me to make a doctor’s appointment to visit my primary care physician which led to her referring me to a specialist. Then the results came in. I have Hyperthyroidism.
