I see you are on eastern standard time. You probably had to call it a night. Sleep well and I look forward to hearing your reply. Thank you very much for such a forum in which to be able to write in this fashion what is in my heart and the annonymity in which to seek help. It means a lot. Blessings, Leslie
I have been tested for low vitamin D levels and thyroid. I was a very marginally borderline on low thyroid and went on a low level levothyroxine. After awhile I was retested and I was normal and told I did not have to continue taking the drug, so I stopped around January or February. I have had a recent physical and am healthy other than the depression issues. I have decided to take steps to listen to as much of your advice as possible. I will see if my insurance carrier will cover accupunture or massage. I will attempt better hydration and include more excercise. I am going to take my pills in the am instead of the afternoon, since the previous days dose is wearing out at that time and may contribute to the afternoon and evening crashes. I will limit alcohol and if I have persistent problems with letting it go get help in accordance with the need. Thank you for your help and your guidance. If you have any additional tips with any of the new information I have just provided I would greatfully appreciate it.
