Good God what is happening to me?  Friday I was in a great mood.  My cranky husband couldn't even put a dent in it.  I felt wonderful even if my body didn't.  I managed to grocery shop and make dinner.  I was on top of the world.  Today I crashed and burned hard.  I had a little tumble with depression.  What is it with the wild mood swings?  I can understand being a little moody but these are severe swings between extremes.  What is going on with my body?

I just read about all things thyroid and my blood number is slightly elevated only 0.5uU/mL above normal but my symptoms more closely match hypothyroidism rather than hyperthyroidism.  My body is so out of whack it isn't amusing any more and I'm just not understanding what in hell is going on.  Bizarre to say the least.


  1. The emotional highs and lows are unfortunately an integral part of CFS. It's not just that it's depressing to feel's that the endocrine dysfunction that messes with our hormones also affects mood. It's not you, it's the illness.

    Hang in there!


  2. Good to know. For me that makes it easier to deal with. If I know it is a chemical imbalance I don't worry about it as much. Thanks!
