Super Hero Powers.

Tomorrow morning.  Bright and early.  I am scheduled for a radioactive iodine uptake test.  I will then find out if I have Hashimotos Disease or Graves Disease.  Or by some miracle. Neither.  That it was a fluke.  and My thyroid can correct itself. 
Of the three, I obviously hope for the third option.  Otherwise I prefer the Hashimotos. But I have more symptoms of Graves. ugh. I mean technically I prefer my body was perfect and healthy.  We get what we get and we don't throw a fit.  Right?  Okay I have thrown a lot of fits.  But I can't help it people.  It's a symptom.  I promise.  Look it up.  anxiety, restlessness, irritability, panic attacks. 
I throw a fit and plead thyroid disease.  Naughty.
I know I am lucky that both of these diseases can be treated (not cured) with thyroid hormone replacement pills and other methods.  But I am still a little nervous about tomorrow.  Grateful we can find out what has been causing me so much pain.  But still nervous.
If you feel so inclined.  Send a prayer my way.  Or good vibes if that's what you want.  I will take either. 
And maybe if I am lucky I will walk away with a super hero power. 
I think I will request elastigirl powers.
