Unhappy can any of you nice ladies help me with questions about meno and HRT??

sorry this post is long.
hi everyone im just wondering if any of you ladies can tell me your exsprences of meno .i had a ovary removed in jan 06 and i have not been the same since my life is a total mess i cry i have seizures my thyrold goes up and down im hot then cold and its 70 outside today, i was on thyrold meds for 9 mos then stopped on my own cause i thought it was causeing my seizures mythyrold levels went down to normal range on its own ,also i took depakote xr 1000mg for 5 mos not one seizure im still on them, then since mar 30th i have had one everyday one mar 30th one april 2,3,4,5,6, so im thinking my meds either need changed or upped, also im thinking of going back on my (HRT) prempro because im thinking maybe i feel this way because of loosing my ovary and maybe my other one isnt working now, and while i took prempro for 2 mos i felt great and wonderfull never cried never had a seizure had tons of energy was happy and felt so proud see i been having the seizures since sept 06 but they got worse i have the drop down seizures , but wasnt on the meds yet either and wasnt on thyrold either . my dr put me on cytomel 25 mcgs because my ft3 was 1.3 and he said normal range was 1.5 -2.6 i stopped taking them though till i see my labs ,
that dont make since does it to put me on if it was just a little bit low? im wondering can someone take HRT with a thyrold and seizure disorder i allready have my prempro at home and if it wont hurt me im ready to take my sister who is 54 is on activilla for 7 mos so far and she loves them i just want my life back can any of you nice ladies please help me here ????
im so desperate for advice .......
and can any of you tell me how you feel after having a ovary or even a total hyst and if your on any HRT how well do they make you feel??
can we take the HRT with
a seizure disorder
a thyrold disorder im due to be tested end of april
has any of you ever been told by your dr that you couldnt take the HRT im just so confused i want to start them today but wanted to find out if taking them with my other disorders would hurt i dont think it will but i dont know so PLEASE anyones advice would really help me here.
i cry alot over this but im sure others have been and maybe still are going through what iam so can anyone help me out here???
thanks so much plus i take 1 mgs xanax for my panic and i want off them if i possibly can .......i have both prempro and activilla so i can take either one ,prempro has been around forever i hear and activilla is new .i have a year supply for both .the only thing prempro did was made me have some light bleeding at first and stomach cramps .activilla i only took them 7 days so i dont know what they do but my sister sure loves them .shes out running all over the place but shes going through normal meno she still has all her female stuff but i have heard women say they had everything removed and felt good and others were a mess and believe me im a mess but somedays im fine i think im a bit depressed because my seizures came back and oh i was so very proud to go 5 whole mos without 1 seizure but there is all kinds of different meds out there for seizures and i cant take anti depressents they never worked (none ) so im not taking them plus anti d's dont replace our hormones right???
thanks vickie

vickie45,

I wish I knew of some way to make all your body parts work properly again! {{{hugs}}}

I know that you have been going through a lot of misery trying to make sense of it all. I cannot help you with whether hrt can be taken when you have seizures and thyroid imbalances. I do know that doctors have to be careful when they prescribe hormones. I do hope that your doctor is willing to listen to you and give you a chance to try them again.
