[QUOTE=accessn12;2814243]Brandy,

Yes, it will get better. Try not to worry too much about the nodules. I know, easier said than done. When I was told about mine, it scared the living c*** outta me. Now, I just figure it either went away on it's own or probably isn't cancerous if I've had it this long and nothing further has happend.

I know about the down part. I get down a lot too. I try not to stay there though cause it's so counter-productive to getting well. A positive outlook is what's kept me going for so long. I've got a very long story. Sometimes I cry but I find laughing makes me feel a lot better about it.

You take care now and keep posting. I know some of these other guys around here will wake up eventually. Try it on a Monday or Tuesday. Seems really busy on those days. Wonder why? :D

Hugs,
Helen

yes i have some depression with my thyriods too but its getting better iam on 50 mg of zoloft for depression along with panic attacks and agrophobia plus i have had some falling down spells can thyriod levels being so low cause this or do you know its been happening alot i went the other day for a cat scan and i was allmost having a panic attack the lady had to stand by me and hold my hand till i through it the dr is checking my stomach and pelvic cause my stomach hurts alot and last yr 2006 i had a ovary removed so hes checking to make sure nothing is wrong on exam he didnt feel nothing inlarged.
[QUOTE=accessn12;2814724]vickie, I do believe low thyroid hormone levels probably could cause falling down episodes. High levels do too. When your homone levels are off nothing works quite right. Out of whack levels can also cause extreme anxiety. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

chathamdb, See. I told you the others would be waking up soon. :) Let's keep this thread near the top and you'll see a lot more people too. Take care.
