Need some help please
Hi Wray you are wonderful for helping those struggling- like myself. My story is ugly. My doctor tried me on many anti-anxiety and antidepressants since last May. Each one made me progressively worse to where I truly developed severe anxiety and depression. The last one he pulled me off of threw me into insomnia and I did not sleep for 9 straight days. I was a complete wreck, lost my job (I was only income), we lost our home and I checked myself into the osych ward in October of 2014. I was hoping they could help me. They out me on Remeron, which made me suicidal. They said just stick with it and it will help me. I got home and stayed on it for 8 weeks. It did not help me. I was not myself, depressed and still a mess. I realized that these drugs were really not going to work for me and started slowly titrating off of it. I am on 5 mg with 4 weeks to go and am having a hard time.
I found a holistic dr that thought there might be some hormonal issues (I am 42-heavy clotty periods, severe mood issues, etc) I got my results back. I have somewhat low T3free (2.8), low free testosterone (.2 pg), high estradiol (387.1 pg) and low progesterone (.3 ng)
I have a compounded 50mg progesterone and some testosterone being mailed to me. In the meantime I have been allying ProGest. I started at 10 mg and am up to 80. I feel depressed, anxious and now can not sleep! I am guessing I have taken too little is causing this.
I am wondering if my numbers seem “off” enough to be causing such havoc in my mental state. My days are very difficult to get through. I don’t feel like myself and don’t want to live like this. I have so much to live for and don’t feel it at all . Thank you!
