I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease about 18 years ago; I also have Iron Deficiency Anaemia. I have worked part time for 9 years as I have struggled with keeping my health balanced. Last year I had a breakdown having been bullied and harassed by my employers. I am now having to have a psychiatric assessment to 'prove' I had a breakdown in regards to a legal case against my former employers - the stress of that has put me on antidepressants again. My Doctor tells me that my thryoid levels are now borderline for my medication, having been stable for nearly 4 years; I am awaiting blood test results to see what that means. I have passed on statements from the internet to my Solicitor; however would like to know if anyone knows of any research that demonstrates the detrimental effects stress has on Hashimoto sufferers.
