Recently I overheard my mom talking to a doctor and he said thyroid problems are often misdiagnosed for depression. I've been struggling with depression and severe social anxiety for the past 9 years and its gotten progressively worse.I also noticed the circles under my eyes are getting darker and darker regardless if I use the most expensive creams promising miracles and strong concealers wont cover it up. My energy level is shot down, I can barely wake up by 10 am, I walk around like a zombie, I have absolutely no desire to go on with life and everything seems meaningless, my sex drive is also gone, I cant feel anything. Like I said.. I look and feel like a zombie, walking around, slouching, always shivering, pale, sunken eyes and the worst part I'm only 21 years old. My lifestyle is very healthy, I exercise on daily basis, I'm in excellent shape, I eat healthy/organic foods, plenty of grains, fruits, veggies, not much of a meat eater, but I consume good amount of protein through nuts.
I have an appoitment soon and hopefully they'll be able to tell me something because I cant go on like this anymore, its exhausting to live.
