Recently I had been told I had thyroid problems which I had been given medicine for 2 years ago. I didn't realise that I had to keep going to the doctor regularly for this. It caused me a lot of problems including stress, Depression, anxiety and irregular, heavy periods which have lasted 2 years. I went to the doctor two days ago and got blood tested for a number of different things. The blood tests came back today and I've been given ferrous fumarate 305mg tablets which I have to take 3 times a day. From what I understand, these are just iron deficiency tablets. If that's the case, I don't understand how they are going to help me or my thyroid problems get better.
I heard that thyroid problems can cause depression. I really don't want to live with that for the rest of my life. It's getting in the way of my teacher training. I've already been kicked out of a placement school because I "haven't made sufficient progress". I'm going insane and I don't know what to do. Every little thing isn't driving me crazy.
