possibly getting diagnosed
« on: October 09, 2020, 05:36:40 PM »
I have a blood test booked for next week to see whether i have seasonal affective disorder and, I've forgotten what it's called now, but it's to do with a gland in your throat that can cause a c******l imbalance in your brain. I've had to have this after speaking with a psychologist after being admitted to hospital last week. I dunno all feels a bit weird, like i feel relieved that im getting support finally but i can't wrap my head around the last week.
not looking for a reply in particular just needed a place to put this down.

It seems sensible to check for physical problems, sounds like your being tested for thyroid conditions which can cause depression symptoms. I hope that you get some answers.  :hug1: :hug2:

Yeah thyroid that was it, had the blood test today today so should hopefully be getting some answers next week. Also start counselling next week so I'm glad things are being sorted. Thank you :)

I just got the results and my thyroids are fine but turns out I have a severe deficiency in vitamin D which the number 1 symptom is depression so I'm being put on medication and I'm going to get a couple SAD lamps. I feel so relieved, the doctor said that in 6 weeks my vitamin D levels will be the highest they've ever been so I should feel the happiest I've been in years. It makes me feel a lot more valid now that I've finally got the right diagnosis and I'm just so glad that things are going to get better.   :yahoo:
