Hi guys! I am the Graves Disease monster, Gravesaurus, but just call me Gravey. My favorite color is blue and my best friends are Roddy (Scleroderma Monster) and Mr. T. (Trigeminal Neuralgia Monster). We like to play golf ⛳️ together, but sometimes I get really hot and sweaty 🥵 and need to rest and drink ice💧water, I feel like having Graves disease can get in the way of everything I want to do.
Graves’ disease can cause bulging of the eyes👀, weight loss, a fast metabolism and even a tremor in the hands. Sometimes the tremor is so bad I can’t even eat soup of a spoon! All the soup has fallen of the spoon🥄 by the time it reaches my mouth.
Don’t be fooled by my appearance, I weigh very little. My thyroid swells up, it’s called goiter, the abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland. That’s why I seem so big.
To sum it all up:
Represents: Graves’ Disease
Favorite Color: Pale Blue
Superpower: Can make his eyes bulge out really big
Prone to: Fatigue, weight loss, weakness
