My depression problem continues to worsen. The “new” cocktail is now history. I’m on yet another combination.
I casually mentioned that I noticed I’m very sensitive to cold now, especially when I’m depressed. Did that get a reaction! Apparently when your thyroid is shot, sensitivity to cold and depression are two of the symptoms. I go in for a blood test today to check on the status of my thyroid. I’m hoping it’s in bad shape and is responsible for this post radiation depression. The treatment for an under active thyroid is pills that are well tolerated and have few side effects.
If not, it’s back to this tedious and painful process of trying different combinations of drugs – and waiting weeks to see if they work before moving on.
