Lately, it seems like my health has not been at its best. I am normally quite depressed, and my health isn’t doing me any good. I had a great job, but my depression made it so difficult for me to work, that I ended up getting fired. I am now being treated for hypothyroidism and pre-diabetes. I’m thinking that these two things could also be adding to my depression. Now I am finding out that the medicines is causing my hormones to go wacky. I am experiencing terrible hot flashes and alternate cold spells. I don’t know how to deal with them. I try dressing for the weather, but my body goes against me. I walk out wearing a sweater because it is supposed to be mild. I get halfway down the block and I am sweating. I take the sweater off, and suddenly I am shivering, I am so cold. I talked to the doctor and he seems to think that it may be the medicine, but he never heard of such unusual reactions to the medicine. I have a great HVAC system in my house, but it doesn’t help me. I keep changing the thermostat so I can find a comfort zone for me, but my internal thermostat always makes it difficult. I am at war with myself and I wonder if I’m not just going crazy. The doctors need to do something quickly. I’m already depressed and my medicine is making it worse. My internal thermostat is about to blow and when that happens, I don’t know what I’ll be doing.
