    Hello - You might want to visit our online forum at http://gdatf.org/forum/ to connect with fellow patients and read stories from others who have been through similar experiences. The key right now is to work with your doctor to get your thyroid hormone levels stabilized, as having thyroid hormone levels out of balance can cause all sorts of physical and emotional symptoms.
