My apologies. I "hit the wall" a few weeks back and flipped into depressed/nonfunctional mode. :( Not sure what happened, but I suspect, as you mentioned, that my thyroid has something to do with it as I became colder and more tired as well. I have some Armour thyroid (about 20some tablets of 1 grain each) and I've been experimenting a bit with it, taking a half or a quarter and it does help.
Thanks for all the links! I enjoyed the jokes and found some good info in them too.
Even before I read your link, I had just started taking 99 mg of potassium a day, in the morning with the rest of my handful of stuff. I'm still taking 500 mg of tyrosine too. A few days, I experimented with extra and also extra L-phenylalanine to see how that would feel and I became EXTREMELY irritable and stressed feeling, so that wasn't the answer.
I've started taking more magnesium too, and it seems to help. I suspect that the magnesium/stress connection for me is extremely sensitive. I've been having very good luck with mg malate -- taking 300 mg at a time (3000 mg of malate), 3 times a day and have had no diarrhea.
I hope you had a good Christmas and are continuing to feel good. :)
I'm going to try to catch up with the rest of the board now.
> Brain fog..or bad short term memory is a symptom of hypothyroid..and one that is a bit too touchy at present for me. I'm like you, I need to retrain in something and get back into the workforce, sigh.
> I'm not sure if I'll be around much longer, my babble mail is on.
What does this last comment mean??
