I'm now under the care of psychiatric help and they are all adement that low thyroid does not cause you too be bed bound and suffer with extream anxiety like I do...it's scared me ...I've been I'll sooooo long and tried so hard to get well ...they see my searching for help and home,abnormal and obsesseive...I'm so ashamed ,I can't get well and it's hurting my children to see me so distraught and lost...my husbands gone and I'm struggling to cope....I can't raise my thyroid levels,trying to come off seroxat after 20 years,can't go too the loo only 7-10 days,can't think ,look like an old lady,just weened myself off hc after 7 years on it,and done a saliva test,don't eat gluten as I had positive bloods but negative biopsy ,don't know how to start with gut health ,or if it's crucial,have no thyroid due too graves,have very high antibodies ,im now up too 31/2 grains of wp and still levels are very low,three years on 300 mg thyroxine and went mental and still low levels...is there any hope? I'm so sorry to be so negative and sad,I just cry in desperation every day,it's all too much...my eldest is so courageous and strong for me but she's a transsexual and suffers really badly herself ,yesterday she told me she drove too the moors and curled up in the boot and cried ,the stress of me and my desperate situation is destroying her...I didn't bring her into the world too cause such ongoing pain....my friends and family have drifted away,and I totally understand why....... Is there really any hope after 23 years of being on a little hampster wheel of desperation? I spend months in bed not able to cope physically , or emotionally,I was diagnosed with M.E 20 years ago after bad flu and working 60 hours a week nursing ... I'm sorry for everything and too everyone .......thank you very,very much for reading all this....I've reached out hundreds of times but I think I'm too complicated for help or hope.xxxxxxx. Tanya.
