I'm a trainee teacher under a huge amount of stress. I had hypothyroidism 2 years ago and took my medication for 6 week and then stopped. Ever since then I have been on my period for 2 years, with a couple of months in between where it would stop. I have been so depressed, basically since I was eleven. But it's been much worse in the last two years and especially in the past month. Mostly due to stress, not sleeping and extreme tiredness. I went to my GP who says that I was supposed to go and see them regularly and not leave my medicines. I was wondering if anybody here knows; if I go back on those medicines, "Levothyroxine", will the depression, stress, tiredness and long menstrual periods be healed? And if so, how long would this take? I'd really appreciate anyone's experience with this, as I really can't afford to be this way whilst I'm learning how to be a teacher. Thank you.
