> I've yet to figure out why depression hit when thyroid went.<

Yeah, it's strange- but there is supposed to be a great link between those with low- unchecked thyroid and depression. There can even be psychosis in some people. Here's just one site of many: http://www.schizophrenia.com/sznews/archives/004348.html (hope it's OK I post a link .... I don't know the rules here just yet!)

>Was told same thing take for life. Before this only well controlled anxiety.<
I was young when my thyroid disease was discovered- I've always had anxiety along with depression-- the depression just got worse as years went by. Can I ask you--- did you feel better after having taken thyroid meds for a while? Did your emotional state improve?

> My pdoc says makes depression harder to treat.<
hmmm.... not ever been told that-- maybe that's partly why my depression is so hard to manage, in addition to relationship dynamics I'm struggling with.

> When your levels were stable depression went away? Or other meds too?<

See-- that's the thing I don't get, in my case anyway, after my thyroid levels got back to normal(from not taking the thyroid meds for two months) the depression remained and even gradually got worse-- so I had to be put on an anti-depressant. which was scary for me(so fearful of side effects) and so as soon as I was feeling a bit better I quit taking it.

wishing you and everyone a great day!
