Looking into counseling

I am currently looking into counseling but upon looking up "counseling" in the Thyroid UK search bar I came across this post a few years ago:


I understand that one of the responses reads that if I would be suffering inexplicable feelings of anxiety with no logical cause then no amount of counseling will help.

Now I feel a bit stuck with this.

I have anxiety about a lot of things, yes, but some of this is anxiety/mood swings/depression etc that is out of proportion.

However when I was on the Levo before (and when I had been into my dose for 2 months) I felt more confident but still a little bit "off". Could it be that I was undermedicated?

Latest TSH I'm still waiting on from the Endo, but after taking the Levo and Vitamin D today I felt a little bit better. Hard to understand really. I feel like I'm not making any sense at all.

Maybe I'm not.

  • Hi Alan, thanks for your reply. :)

    I'd like to get some opinions/feedback if I post a draft letter to send to my GP as a question on this site.

  • Sorry, the draft letter I'll be creating will be long. But I can shorten it if needed.

  • I'm certain that the good people on this site will help and adjust , if they see something that could help -----I always re-write /adjust official letters 3/4/5/ times before the end letter is sent ---- alan x

  • Thanks Alan. Letter's finished as I had to copy and paste most of it but I still adapted it for the GP's perusal.
