The Thyroid Foundation of Canada website has an article which contains a good discussion of mental/emotional difficulties we experience while thyroid levels are either too high or too low: http://www.io.org/~thyroid/Articles/EngE10F.html
Here is one on thyroid-related skin conditions:
At the end of these articles are hyperlinks to an index of articles, containing other informative articles, including some good ones on the eye problems, on radioactive iodine treatment, and thyroid problems in pregnancy. There are answers to many of the questions I’ve seen recently on this Support Group BB.

Hi everyone! It’s a beautiful Saturday here in North Carolina, and I feel so low I just wanted to ask if anyone has any suggestions for curing the blues? I seem to be swinging between euphoria and hope to the deepest blues, and I’ve always been a pretty even-keel person. My eyes are itching and they HURT. Taking PTU for 13 days, when can I expect to feel somewhat better. Can’t sleep for more than a couple hours ata time, but too fatigued to get up and do anything. The worst problem, though, is the total lack of understanding or help from either my best friend or my S.O. I don’t want pity, but I would like them to ask how I’m feeling or offer to help out with the housework, etc. I am feeling very alone and abandoned by them. I am grateful to have this bb to vent on. Mostly I love my life, and I am pissed off that this GD GD has come along to interfere. When will I ever feel normal again? When will I stop feeling sorry for myself???????????? When will I get my energy back? What’s the point in living like this? Blah, blah, blah.AnonymousMarch 15, 1997 at 3:45 pmPost count: 93172
