Angry help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am being treated for low thyroid and seemed to have gotten much better, physically and emotionally, but... in the last couple of months my periods have only lasted about 2 days and i am having terrible mood swings! i don't feel like i am ever really "happy" per say, but i am o.k. one minute , and then the next i'm either crying or really angry. i don't understand the anger part of this. i hate everything about myself. from my looks to my body, to my attitude. i don't have any friends i can talk to. i get migraines and when i cry i get them and then it all gets worse. i am trying not to behave this way in front of my kids, its so hard. i feel like a freak. i also feel like i may be experiencing some symptoms of early menopause. boy i sound and feel like a huge mess. i used to love to do crafts and now most of the time i have to force myself to do anything and then i usually end up getting frustrated and angry, then crying. i have an appt. with my doc on wednesday, but i'm going to be very embarrassed to say how i am really feeling.
thanks for listening!

Re: help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You should print this off and give it to your doctor.

Re: help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know how you feel, I get the same way. There is always something to look forward to, so don't get down! I'm sure w/ the proper treatment you will feel much better, but until then, try to enjoy something little. The taste of your coffee, a random "hi!" on the street, or anything you appreciate, it works for me, try it!
