Ok please bare with me

I've just been diagnosed as having depression again!

I'm very much up & down all the time, i haven't started taking anti-depressants yet as the last lot made me sick, so until that time it very hard at times.
I had my blood taken recently as i have an underactive thyroid, as i told the doctor i didnt feel right. She has confirmed that its still very underactive but can't up my dose just yet. Whilst doing this she also told me that my liver function tests were slightly abnormal.
I'm so pissed off, i seem to be falling apart.:(
My boyfriend has been great, but i keep biting his head off & just generally being a bitch. I really dont mean to be but it just seems to happen.
I know that there are people worse of than myself, but i can't help but feel sometimes "why me?" i know its selfish :( .

I guess i just need to get it off my chest.
Any suggestions, help would be appreciated.

*Probably not making much sense and is probably beyond help*:confused:

    i know how you feel, i can't offer you any practical advice but i thought that it might help you to feel like you're not being selfish if there are others who feel the same.

    at least you have someone to turn to, I dont even have that!

    Hiya,

    Having an underactive thyroid can have a direct effect on your moods and make you feel really depressed. At least your doctor has picked this up, and preparing to treat you.

    Even if you don't feel like it, try to do a few simple things to raise your mood:

    Hiya, I was looking up some medical stuff and came across the following links which may interest you in addition to Karla's suggestion above.

    They give some details on symptoms and treatment and so on.
