Quote from curlyroller:i've been taking synthroid for two weeks now, but i am still so depressed i don't know what to do. i don't know what to do. i know that this is physical, but that doesnt help me feel any better.
i know that i need to be patient waiting for the meds to get into my system and work, but i am so messed up emotionally, i don't know how i am going to make it.
can anyone help?
At my worst, I drove myself to the ER crying my eyes out and told the doctor I was afraid I was going to kill myself. The only thing that kept me from doing that was I wanted to see my son grow up. My doc had me on Prozac and Xanax at the same time. Of course, that did nothing for me. I left my dh for three months during that period. It was a very bad situation for me. The roller coaster of emotions was almost unbrearable. I just wanted to lay down and die in my sleep. I felt that if nothing else could be peaceful in my life, at least death should be.
Hang in there. As tough as it seems, you'll make it through this. Once your on meds for a while and they are adjusted to what your body needs, you'll begin to feel better.
