Dont know if its connected but im really down in the dumps and dont seem to snap myself out of it. I started hrt about 3 months ago, and to start with i felt better, but now i dont feel like socialising at all, id rather stay at home on my own. And i seem to be getting quite paranoid and worrying all the time, about everything. Im normally quite outgoing and cheerfull, i have got a big problem with my hearing, and recently had it checked, not good it had got quite alot worse in the last 2yrs. im not ancient at 50, but am feeling it. It feels like a black cloud is following me around. Last bloods taken in sept and were on the high side, which is unusual cos im normally underactive, could the hrt be affecting my thryoxine asborbtion. Any answers please.
