maybe you should stop/change the ad's go and see your gp again maybe you could benefit from counselling.

get your thyroid function tested

lethargy and feeling constantly tired is a big symptom of an underactive thyroid whichis easily treated.
Make an appointment on Monday with your GP

sorry biglips, but you are describing me exactly when I had underactive thyroid for 3 and a half years. Wonder what else it could be?

biglips Sat 20-May-06 14:28:39

biglips Sat 20-May-06 16:02:21

It can take a while for the ADs to take effect, and for docs to find the right one / right dose for you. But were you diagnosed with depression 'just' because of the lethargy thing? Do you think you're depressed or could it be something else? From what you've said, it sounds like they've slapped the depression label on you because a few tests haven't found anything else.

ive had depression for the past 14 yrs (unknown why?) but was only diagnosed last December as i thought i could snap out of it!

Biglips I think I feel like you...
I had a million thing that I really need to do, but just can't concentrate or be arsed....
I have also been checked, and been given tabs. I hated them! Made me feel worsed and drugged. I actually felt really well the week after I gave them up! Have been wondering whether maybe I need a lower dose....
How about diabetes? any family history?
You could also try talk therapy?
If you find a good answer, let me know!!!

biglips Sat 20-May-06 16:14:30

im waiting for my counselling to start any day now on on CBT counselling

i just wish i was a happy person as i feel fed up and knackered all teh time...

not diabetes, and my aunty (Who died 3 yrs ago) had a severe manic depression

is easy to get that way and not see a way out. guess we all have dreams of what we want to be and do, and when they are so far from where we are now it makes it seem impossible to fulfil them. so we give up trying and accept that this is it, it wont get better. BUT it can, just think of what you want for yourself and your kids and then look at real, practical ways of going about getting them. that doesnt mean robbing banks to get a big house and lots of hols, but start with the simple basic changes you may want to make and go from there. its not impossible just start with easy steps you can take and keep going.
eventually you will get where you want to be - and dont forget we are all just 'works in progress' - it takes a lifetime to become who we really want to be.
