Hi Barb-cat,

Thanks so much for that post. Lord knows I needed all that advice. So how would I tackle this thyroid topic with my doctor? I'm wondering if he'll just want to drug me up with more seroquel or something when I see him next. My guess is he'll want to raise the Risperdal, give it two weeks. If that doesn't do the trick, he'll want to try seroquel (because of all of the new clinical evidence, of course).

But I reallly want to tackle the thyroid thing with him very soon. Do you order your supplements in the mail or get them from the health store? Is hypothyroid a LOW thyroid functioning? I'll look some of this up.

As for the man. Well, I've decided that I can only do what I can do. You know? We're not that serious yet. And if it starts to get serious, then I'll let him in on my not feeling so well. Or if it just happens to come up in conversation--that I seem down to him or whatever, then I'll let him in on it. I'm not going to just drop a big bomb on him. It sucks much more for me than it does for him. I just have to remember that. I'm not actually causing him pain. I tend to think that when I'm at my lowest (you know--burdoning everyone in my life, etc.)
He's not been without depression in his life. And he has friends who are bipolar and depressives.

Thanks again, Miss Barb-cat
Katy
