I was told my diagnosis of minimally invasive encapsulated follicular carcinoma 3 days before Christmas, after having my thyroid totally removed on Nov 13. Also my parathyroids no longer work and my voice is crappy and my hair is falling out.
Since the diagnosis I have been a mess emotionally. I cry almost every day, am having issues making myself eat (an old eating disorder rearing its ugly head), I am grumpy especially at my wonderful husband, have horrible mood swings and fly off the handle way too fast.
All this and I have a darling 1 year old as well so as you can imagine the sleep is not great, even if I wasn't dealing with insomnia issues as well lol. And I have very little energy.
Add to that I have back pain very frequently, and just the other day fell down the curb and hurt both feet, one knee and one ankle....
And then there is the weight gain...
It is getting harder and harder to put on a brave face around others. I am going to my doctor on Monday to let him know all the crap that is going on. I am already on a low dose of citrilopram (sp?) but maybe it is not enough.
My husband said yesterday that he worries what he will come home to, if I will be the original me or the sad and angry me that is appearing more and more lately. We never used to argue or fight but now I seem to pick fights all the time with him - even though I don't want to. I just feel so mad and depressed and frustrated and I take it out on him ( verbally never physically)
