In a clip from the upcoming interview, via People, Williams says that she feels women have a tendency to care for everyone and everything else in their lives before themselves -- and she's tired of it.
"We, as women, particularly if we have families, you know, we’re taking care of children, we’re taking care of, you know, our home, our husbands, we take care of everybody but ourselves," Williams tells GMA anchor Amy Robach. "And it’s really unfortunate."
"That is something that has no socioeconomic thing to it," she continues. "No matter what the woman’s status is, it seems like we’re all in the same boat."
"We take care of ourselves last," Robach chimes in.
"Yeah!" Williams responds. "I'm not doing that anymore, Amy. Wendy first!"
According to the Mayo Clinic, Graves' disease is "an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones." Symptoms include weight loss, anxiety, irritability, tremors in hands, bulging eyes, fatigue and heat sensitivity.
Williams told her viewers that it feels like there are "birds swimming around my head, like a cartoon." She further quipped, "Like I'm constantly high -- but not high."
