Went to my family doctor, I finally have a good one (Only took what, 10 years?) She drew complete labwork, my thyroid levels are all right. She sent me to my endocrinologist, who did an ultrasound of my thyroid. It is slightly enlarged, no big deal for a person w/ Graves disease.
Aside from being too skinny, and oh yeah an incomplete quad, I'm a perfect physical specimen LOL.
I've tried several antidepressants. Zoloft is working out the best. It's enabled me to try living again, I have been majorly depressed and overwhelmed since my husband suddenly died w/ no will and a jillion messes to clean up.
The only thing is, now I stutter. Celexa was worse. The only thing that stops the stutter is xanax, which my endo says is a pretty darned good treatment for ppl w/ thyroid issues. Celexa gave me huge panic attacks, zoloft doesn't.
I'm afraid of xanax, though. I'm off pain meds, have no desire to start the cycle w/ benzos. Dependence or addiction, it's all the same in my eyes. It sucks.
Does this happen to anyone else, or is it just my insane life catching up to me? (I am chronically anxious, it's always something.)
