Any chance anyone knows anything at all about the U. Chicago SCNRL lab? I am so much struggling right now with my thyroid being out of control, not getting proper sleep & now starting to think that people are wanting to kill me (which I know is crazy & even though I feel very strongly that it's true, I don't feel that it's true in the same way that "the sky is blue" is true). So I need to get help. but this whole thyroid thing is just screwing everything up. and I need someone who gets that -- not some psychiatrist who's going to look at a TSH of 28 & pronounce me "normal" and decide I just need a mountain of anti-depressants to heal me. I know you all get that. thank god.
I am just overwhelmed & I am trying to figure out what to do & I am not even thinking straight, so if anyone has been to the SCNRL lab or knows someone who's been or has looked into it at all, that would really help me out. I'm thinking of moving up my next appointment with my PCP to talk to her about other options. She wants me to wait until the 16th, but honestly, I am just falling apart.
We tried cutting the dose & by week 3 I became extremely depressed. Then we went back to the 50's & I have more energy, but the thoughts about people following me or wanting to hurt me are getting a lot worse. My doc said it's probably from the thyroid. She's pretty smart & hasn't been wrong so far, but my life is coming apart & I can't keep waiting for these 6 week intervals to pass -- though I'm fighting hard to do so... practicing breathing, doing exercises, going out, etc. Of course, the only thing that helps at all is the ice. I hate ice in the wintertime, but it does make me feel less stressed. I just gave notice at my temp job today & I'm sure that was not in my best interest, but like I said, my life is coming apart.
thanks for any info anyone can share.
