Thanks soooooooooooooooooooooo much to all of you for responding!!! I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I really feel for those of you with kids! I'm single, no kids and live with my 2 cats. I went hyper 2 years ago before going hypo and having the lobectomy. I was NUTS!!! When I found out in May that I had a thyroid problem and started reading about it I was so relieved to see that the mood stuff could be thyroid. I was like a new person after the surgery! Until of course I had to start the meds and now need to adjust them. But it's so good to hear that it can get better! I have been on antidepressants for 10 years and I am also beginning to think I may not need them. Before I found out about the thryroid my dr and I were changing meds around because of my mood. I had also started taking Strattera because I thought I had ADD!!! I couldn't remember my name half the time, VERY scary!! Is stopped the ADD meds prior to surgery. I was concerned that they might mask stuff that was haapening with my thyroid and I wanted to make sure I get my thyroid meds right before dealing with anything else, if I even need too. I'm still on the antidepressants though. I've been on this dose for 6 weeks now so it's time for blood!
Thanks again!!!
