HI D ye your not far off with your surmising of me ,but the demon inside me doesn't see the sensitivity as a positive but since ive been sober and learned more about myself I am accepting this part of me .if anything I'm a pathological over thinker .

I cant really fault my parents they did the best with what they had ,if anything this withdrawl process has taken me from them ,they don't see me anymore because withdrawl is causing so much trouble for me.hopefully in a year or two it will get better for me .

Thanks for your kind words D .happy  Easter to and be well .

 

I understand the overthinking,I do a lot of that myself,especialy obsessing about the past,drives me nuts sometimes.

 

I guess we have to realize that our parents had their reasons for being the way they were,and we can't expect things from people that just aren't capable of giving them...it can be so hard though.

 

anyway,wishing you better days ahead and Happy Easter!

 

take care,ds

thanks so much,Flowers

actually think I'm doing a little better the last couple days...mostly physical right now.

 

how are you doing?

 

hope you have a Happy Easter.

love and hugs,ds

Its good to hear you have felt a little  better and I hope it continues.

 

The winter here has been long and wet - can't wait to get some Spring sunny days!  I have been quite well for a few weeks but not so good these past few days.  I had a bit of a shock last week when I lost a friend. Think this may be behind my feeling a bit low.  Still getting up and out though so not too bad!

 

You have a lovely Easter weekend too!

Good luck on the thyroid test. :) I hope it turns out fine.

I started a low dose of thyroid meds. NP Thyroid, 15mg. My TSH just kept climbing. Hopefully it's from tapering Lexapro. Otherwise I'm doing well.

You can have thyroid symptoms without it showing on paper. But you need a dr that works with people not just lab reports.

I hope you do. Otherwise, I'm not a dr or a mod, but google it and have documentation to prove it, that's only my opinion.

 

I wish you luck. Let me know what your numbers are.

Sorry to hear that. I wish I knew when the anxiety will go away. I take Xanax. I'm so nervous about tapering it because of the anxiety.

 

You should know today or tomorrow on your thyroid results. It doesn't take long. Did they check your T's and TSH?

That's ok . I have insurance. They check everything once a year. Everything was fine except my TSH. That was the only thing that was high.

 

Hopefully they will find an answer for you. 

 

I'm not a dr or a mod, again my opinion, but I went through 3 thyroid meds before I found one that didn't make me sick or jittery. NP Thyroid is what I take.

 

Good luck :)

I;ve been on thyroid meds for almost40 years but just stopped last August when the lab didn't accept the discount card anymore and my Dr. didn't seem to want to help.

I was only on 25 mcgs. a day so thought I would just stop,maybe not the best decision.

 

anyway will see what happens.

 

thanks for your support.

talk soon.  xx

Let me know what you find out.

 

Good luck.

Please do. I hope everything turns out ok.

 

But after being on them so long, I bet they put you back on them. That's just my guess though.

I'm ok. I don't want to take them either. But that's life I guess. Hopefully I won't have to take them forever. We are having a blizzard right now. The last 2 days it was 83. I'm tired of having to go out and brush off the satellite dish so I can watch tv lol... And they are saying power outages. So, may not have the Internet. I hope the power stays on. How are you?

It is crazy weather. I keep having to go out and clean off the satellite so I can watch tv.

 

I am perfectly happy staying inside with Brownie. When we move home there will be things for me to do and I'll get out. 

 

Have a good day. Enjoy the sun.

I feel like I have been doing worse since having my cataract surgery in Jan.

I was wondering if any body else felt worse after surgery or anesthesia and how long it took for you to get back to WD normal?

thanks for any replies.
