Anderton Posted April 14, 2004 Share Posted April 14, 2004 Of all the extremely good advice here, the second opinion is el primo. People tend to trust doctors. DON'T. There's a wide range of dedication and intelligence in there. I had serious depression for decades, for no good reason. I could have had the best day in the world, yet things were still dark. I went to a variety of doctors, shrinks, took some antidepressants for a while (they didn't work), everything. Finally I just came to the conclusion it was something I was going to have to live with. Then when I was getting a physical and I told the doctor about my depression, he said "Have you ever had your thyroid checked?" Turned out I had an imbalance. For $12 a month in very mild thyroid medication the depression went away. I still get depressed -- doesn't everybody -- but only if there's a good reason. Big improvement. Then again, there's the woman I know who was told 13 years ago she had six months to live. Oooops, the doctors kind of got that one wrong too. I only wish my blood panels were as good as hers . Clean up your act to reboot your bod, then find some real doctors. Stall on paying your bills as long as you can so you can find out what's wrong. Don't give up because there IS an answer out there, but it may be hard to find.
