Hi all,  its been a while since i last posted here... i was actually doing really well... i was on my medications and i felt really good... then i decided to get off of them and i lasted pretty well for about 3 weeks... already i can feel it coming back... im afraid to tell my mom that i want to get back on the medications... i dont know why i dont want to consult her... but then just today she came up to me and said "I think you might have a thyroid problem." That kind of shocked me untill i started to think... My mom has had a thyroid problem also and i might also have gotten it from her... i looked online to see what it was and a lot of the symptoms fit me.... it was really wierd... it said a depressed mood, weight gain (unfortuneatly i definitely have that :(  ), dry skin (something ive been dealing with for a long time), fatigue, inability to sleep ( if any of you can remember, i wasnt able to sleep for a long while)... its just so weird to look at something on the internet and compleately understand what its talking about, much like it is here... my mom made an appointment on thursday and hopefully ill be able to get some answers.... all this time i couldn't explain why i felt like this and now i just might have an answer... thanks for listening... i came here to feel great and you guys always do that for me... thanks :)

Hi Froggie,

If you do have a thyroid problem, that can be sucessfully treated with medications. And that also gives you a reason to talk to the doctor about the depression if it isn't from the thyroid problem.

Glad to see your post and I hope all works out for you.

Hugs, Karen

Eversince my mom told me that I might have a thyroid disease, I've actually been feeling worse... i think the whole metal thing about it has triggered something i havent felt in a while... those old feelings of not being able to function without being on the verge of tears or think becasue of all the things on my mind... its not about the whole thyroid thing, its old things i used to think about before i even started my meds... its horrible... i walk aroung aimlesssley around the house, going from each room and not being able to settle down, as if everything is just too much to do, so i cant do it... its weird...

Hi Froggy,

Try really hard to stay in the moment of things. When you walk into a room, just look at the room. Notice things, where they are, what you do with it. Like your furniture for example. Just think about how it was made. Stay in the moment, appreciate what is going on at the time. Being in the now helps us not to worry about things that we have no control over. The future and the past. To truly be happy you have to live in the now. Be aware of what is going on around you in the present time. I know that it is not easy, but with practice, you can do it. I may have wrote this to you before, but you should look at it this way: The past is history, tomorrow a mystery. Today is a gift, that is why they call it the present.

Good luck, Keep posting
hugs, Karen
