    Hi. I live in Boca Raton and hope to participate in a local support
    group also. I had the radio.iodine. treatment 12/94. I had no side-
    effects from the treatment, no upset stomach, skin changes or hair loss.
    My symptoms started after becoming very “hypo-active” 3-4 months later.
    I am still being adjusted with my daily Synthroid, but I have moved a
    few times and changed doctors so I think that has hindered my progress.
    My depression seems to center around my eye problems and the changes in
    my appearance which didn’t seem to start until much later.
    From what I have read, and I want to read everything I can, not everyone
    goes through this. I hope you do not and I wish you the best….Julie
