I may or may not be depressed....

My thyroid is way off again.  I am very hypothyroid and I always take my thyroid meds as directed.  I see the endocrinologist tomorrow.  I am going to ask her if we can't keep a closer eye on my thyroid.  I should start to feel less tired!

I guess this is a good lesson for us all (definitely for me Wink).  Don't assume everything is caused from chemo or cancer.  Keep an eye on other symptoms and issues too!

Of course cancer always takes priority and is blamed for everything. 

When is the Wedding? Time flys and Chemo brain is not helping.

Good luck

Good luck with appt today.

I also found out I can't blame all on chemo.  Fatigue has me so worn any walking is an effort.  Thought it was all chemo.  Turns out a good part of it is high blood sugar.

Life is full of surprises.

My prayers are with you.

Thanks!  We went up on my levothyroxine today and I am going to have my TSH checked every 2 months now.  My level was 10 X the normal.  Endocrinologist thinks that the chemo is interfering with absorption.  I am not sure if it is the chemo or the cancer, but hopefully my level will come up and I will feel better.

I have been beyond exhausted and blaming it all on chemo.  I am not going down on lexapro for now because I am feeling less depressed and the onc said leave it alone for now.  I agree!

so I understand the frustration, confusion and quest to confirm that we are NOT INSANE, or depressed.  During chemo I saw my Endocrinologist every 3 to 4 months - however, I now feel I should of seen him more often.

Happy Thoughts and Strength, CC

Chemo was interfering with my uveitis.  My doctor exchange the drops I was on to another.  Since the oncologist decrease the dosage of my chemo, the last time I saw my eye specialist, it was pretty good.

I am always exhausted too.  Good luck CC and I hope it all works.
