The talk show host will be discussing with the health expert about her health on Monday. "When I see you in the grocery store, when I see you on the streets, please don't ask me how I feel", she said. Upon the news that she had to take three weeks off of work, Wendy told GMA's Amy Robach, "I cried and then I laughed".

Williams, 53, revealed to viewers last month that she was battling Graves disease and hyperthyroidism and the notorious workaholic was mandated by her doctors to take three weeks off.

About 20 minutes into the show, Williams started to break down crying, and dried her eyes with Q-tips.

"Okay - I had missed three doctors" appointments with my endocrinologist. Graves' disease is an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism).

Williams further stressed how she has a newfound focus on her health.

Compared to a few months ago, however, Wendy admits she's certainly turned the corner. Now, in the first interview since her return, the beloved host is speaking out.

"It was a flawless storm; a ideal storm that had been brewing, I have to say, internally, knowing my body, since late July", Williams told Amy Robach during the interview. "Thank you for understanding and being my special people", she said through tears.

"We take care of everybody but ourselves, and it's really unfortunate", Williams said in the interview.

Going through the menopause at the same time also meant that Wendy blamed her issues on the wrong health concern, as she explained: 'With the menopause, I wasn't pointing a finger to any particular thing. And that - that is something that has no socioeconomic thing to it. "No matter what-no matter what the woman's status is, it seems like we're all in the same boat", she continued, adding that "I'm not doing that anymore".

Now after taking a two weeks off, a glowing Williams said she's feeling much better and is ready to get back to her popular talk show. She finished the show and returned the next day saying her tests came back fine.

Actor Jerry O'Connellfilled in for Williams during the hiatus, which is the first time Williams has had a guest host in the history of the 10-year-old show.
