Jun 22, 2012 · I am considering taking my 25 year old daughter with extreme hair loss and hasimoto's disease to mayo's. Any experience? in Just Want to Talk

Has she been tested for polycystic ovarian syndrome? I think some of the symptoms are hair loss, dry skin, etc. My daughter also has that and the symtoms seem to overlap some. Good luck. Hair loss is no fun.

I am assuming she is on medication. Has she been followed by a medical practitioner? My daughter has had Hashimoto’s for 30+ years. Her meds have been monitored and here meds have been adjusted several times. I suggest she make an appointment with an endocrinologist and to have her labs checked.

Sep 7, 2011 · I think I have depression in Depression & Anxiety

Dear Miranda…speaking as a female who has conquered depression, with the help of meds and therapy, please, please get some help NOW. Your depression does not sound minor. Most of all, remember that depression is more than just feeling sad. This is not caused by you or your family. There is a chemical that your brain produces and it is not getting where it is supposed to be and doing what is supposed to do. Before I conquered my depression, I saw no colors. You will be amazed how many and how wonderful the colors in our lives are after you get the help you need. Please do not delay!!

What would happen if patients with diabetes decided to quit their meds? To me it’s about the same thing…the body is not producing the correct chemical (insulin or serotonin. So why are people reluctant to accept the medications offered for depression?
