I think I did this wrong at first and responded to anothers problem. anyhow, i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 2 weeks ago. the symptoms first began about 6 weeks ago...extreme lethargy, no motivation, extreme swelling and pain in mp fingers and horibble depression, missed period, etc. At first thought i was pregnant as there had to be some rational explanation, but was not. Finally my doctor ran the tests and it was positive. During this time I also had bronchitis and the flu so it has been literal hell. I have only been taking the 88mg of synthroid for about 5 days. Jut to give some brief history i have been to the best tx centers and have finally been properly diagnosed with adhd. there is some depression as it is co-morbid with adhd but nothing like I have experienced latley. One minute i am uncontrollably sobbing feeling so hopeless that i do not want to exist and then i am fine. this happens all day long and i feel like i am loosing it. i hope this medicine starts working fast as i have not worked in 6 weeks and still cant get out of bed until about 2pm (and that is with a lot of stimulant for the adhd in me). I have always been a morning person. Also have been to the hospital on 2 occasions in past 2 weeks for insomnis. last time was bfore xmas and lasted thru xmas day with enough drugs to put a horse to sleep but not me. tonight i am going on 2nd night without sleep. i am not manic...i know this...believe me i was a therapist plus have been to many centers for a correct diagnosis and i want to sleep. the depression and fatigue are bothering me the most and no one understands...people say just make yourself get up and go to the gym.. Believe me it takes everything out of me to take a shower...then rest before i can even dry off, then makeup, then rest...u get the idea..i feel like i am 80 and dying. Hope not to long and hope it makes sense..sorry its partly the adhd and the lack of proper sleep. Also plan to go to psychiatrist tom and find a great endocronologist. thanks for letting me ramble...obviously i have had no one to talk to about this or that understands. I do have friends who have this but there symptoms were mild and tx worked within 2 weeks. Just desperate. Anything would be helpful..thanx

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
