I feel very lost and not included on this forum these days.  I don't know if it is just me or not.  My last post didn't get much response and I was hoping for some help.  I know this is not the doctors office but you guys are wonderful.  
Sorry everyone don't mean to sound like a selfish butt.  
I'm going through a rough time.  This thyroid thing has made me feel like my life is over.  I can't even take care of my family.  Like today I slept till 3pm and still don't feel like I've slept any.  Very irritable and unhappy.  
The doctor is an *** and I can't stand him.  My pysch doc is no help either.  
I just feel so lost in life.  I'm very stressed.  My husband is no help when he's at home and stresses me out when he is on the road.  I just don't know what to do sometimes.  I'm even having these feelings of post partum depression.  Like I want nothing to do with the baby and when I have to i get very irritated sometimes.  I DON'T like it.  I'm not like that I LOVE my baby.
I need answers about this thyroid ultra sound.  The doc stated that I had lymph nodes in my thyroid?  What does that mean?  Do lymph nodes move?  I didn't think they did and everything I look up about lymph nodes and thyroid lead to cancer.  I don't want to go that route, thinking wise if that not what it is.  
Well thanks to everyone who reads this.  And sorry if I offended anyone.  
Prayers to all

You are not alone. Many women go through post partum depression. Keep talking to your doctor, your babies doctor anyone and everyone!! Many communities have support groups. That might help to be with other ladies that are going through this too. It will pass but it is hard to go through. I will keep you in my prayers.

I know how you feel I went threw post partum depression after my second child, I also have tyroid problems well they tell its abnormal my doctor for my diabeties tells me that its not abnormal enough to really be on meds because they interact with my hormone i take because of my hysterectomy, and i have another doc. who tells me that i need to be on meds and that, that is the reason i have so many migraines.

Dear Jessi63,
I don't know how I missed your post. Actually, I saw it this morning and I thought I responded, apparently not. I had an early morning appointment, maybe that's how I got distracted.

I suggest to you Jessi to start learning about nutrition to help you and stop focusing on meds because they treat the symptoms but have horrible side-effects. You need to hear and learn about Reliv nutritional products. Many moms that I know use these products for pre and post natal supplement and have helped them in their pregnancies, healthy babies and no post partum depression. I know these products got me out of a mild depression that was starting to set in when I lost my strength from neck down to my lower back plus a host of other health issues. I am also working with a gentleman who was diagnosed with clinical depression and is helping him a lot-more positive, focused and happier.

Tell me if you are interested, I'll help you with the information.

I've been gone from the boards for a while, my three jobs keep me crazy, not to mention my kids and all my "new" tests I've been going through for kidney stones, gallbladder, or ovarian cysts?!  But, I know what you mean about not feeling like anything.  I wasn't diagnosed with my thyroid problem when I had this huge goiter and a new baby and no answers.  They just kept doing the routine tests and I was within "normal"  I remember just wanting to lay in bed all day.  It's okay.  Just take one day at a time.  Find a song that means something to you and listen to it all the time.  This last September 11th, before my thyroid nodule scare and surgery, I wanted to share something meaningful with my junior high classes.  I found the song "little did she know" on the internet about  a woman who has a husband on the plane.  It helped me put my problems into perspective a little.  I know I am a music freak, but I truly feel like if you can find something that allows for a little release from the daily problems and grind, or makes me break my "funk" it helps.  Wishing you the best of everything!  I hope you find what it is you need, even if it is just a smile from that new baby that cheers your heart!  
With love, Lori
