    Although I have experience depression to some extent since having my
    thyroid “nuked”, my main seige of depression came before I was
    diagnosed with Graves Disease. I had no idea what was wrong with me,
    and I was thoroughly convinced I was losing my mind. I was afraid to go
    to a doctor for fear my “diagnosis” would be confirmed. I was to the point
    I was not functioning well at all.

    When I feel depressed now, I realize there is a physical cause for it,
    which helps me to deal with it. I’m on an extremely low dosage of Synthroid,
    and I hope that my doctor will increase the level soon, because I think that
    might help. I think I also get depressed over the weight I’ve gained
    since the RAI, but ANYTHING is better than what I was going through
    before the treatment. :)

    why don’t you see an endocrinologist if you aren’t feeling better? I
    was diagnosed today and i won’t stop asking advice until i feel well
    again.
