I wonder if I can maybe get some insight from someone here on this site.
I guess first I will let you know a bit about me.58 yrs old.Hypothroiism ,high cholestral.Took the pills for cholestral for 2 months had to get off .Liver reading went from 24 to 86. I have a very ill mother with end stage liver desease,My brother just got dignoised with Lung cancer.My 16 year old granddaughter just moved in with me, with all of her 16 yr old attitude.Just retired from my job after 40 yrs had so many plans to travel etc,now everything is on hold
For the last 2 weeks I have felt so fatigued , I feel like ive had a flu virus for 2 weeks.Im nasuated, tired, achy, all I want to do is go to bed.But alas, I'm not sleeping.Oh I did also get dignoised with ibs not long ago.But am not taking anything but belladonna as needed nothing daily.
Some friends of mine are insisting Im not sick, what I am is depressed and stressed.I talked to my Dr. he suggested maybe a mild antidepressent for a period of 6 months no longer.I really hate to depend on any kind of drug.But if in fact I am depressed and not sick with a virus ,Im asking does anyone have any suggestions as to what to take.Ive heard so many horror stories from people who have gained weight,and felt the pills did no good. Ive tried St James Wort that didnt help at all.
So any suggestions any of you kind people have for me would be very appreciated.
