I changed my deviantart name to Greekceltic. Arguably it’s a step backward as I always assumed the old name would never go out of style for me, but I feel.. better this way?
Everyone I know uses a pseudonym. I just figured, okay, I’ll be a pretend me again.
I’m still struggling with anxiety…
If you have weight problems, anxiety and depression, trust me, its your thyroid.
I have thyroid problems since, what? Eight years or so?
And depression is probably the least known symptom. But yeah, you can suffer depression, you can get anxious.
I had depression through all my teenage years until they found my thyroid’s farting all around (it fluctuates from producing a lot of hormones to almost nothing). The pills actually helped tons to fight my depression, tho my first treatment didn’t helped me at all with anxiety (it was done terribly wrong and my whole body paid the price due to my doctor being a stupid ass with a degree!)
Here hoping you get a doctor soon and see if its your thyroid. Beside pills to help the gland produce hormones, there is not much to it, really.
I always thought it was something hormonal but I never knew what a thyroid was responsible for until my sister explained where it was and what it does.
It’s actually kind of a relief that it might be a possibility. I’ve always had hormonal problems, I just .. didn’t really know the nature of them or if I was better on or off medication in the long term.
Having anxiety like this just out of the blue and as intense as it gets is crazy. Some days I can confront my triggers and be perfectly fine, brush them off, move on! (I guess those are the rational, chemically-balanced days), and then comes an afternoon where I shatter without warning.
