Gmoon, first off it's good that you got dx now, and you will know what to do about it. Please don't worry.
My mom's cousin had goiter decades ago and had it removed (or, I really don't know the exact operation for it). She had same symptoms all her life, until her glands got removed. Also, goiter is a known cause for depression/anxiety. It can be managed with meds, not necessarily everyone needs surgery.
As far as I know, enlarged thyroid glands are like 90-95% benign :) I wouldn't worry about it.
Sending you best wishes
