Well where to start phew!
In 2009 I had a baaaad year. My husband was diagnosed and treated for testicular cancer (my kids were 5, 2 1/2 and 6mths) he lost his job because of it. That was in March 2009. In October 2009 my Dance studio (I was only teach 20 students all family friends and their kids) was destroyed by well lets just say some nasty minded people. I was taken to court for fraud, lost my government support (I have been on a disability pension for panic disorder) as this person informed the government that I was earning over $1000 a week teaching dancing. All was dismissed with the government and court agreeing that they didn't know why this became an issue with them as it was proved I made a total profit of $20 per week. Too late, I miscarried my fourth child at 14 weeks in december 2009 and everything has gone down hill from there. In Jan 2010 I put on 25 kilos. I am one of those people who eats like a horse and looks like a stick. So that was a shock. I have steadily been putting on weight since then, my 1st dr, told me I was just getting old - yeah I turn 35 this week. Since then my migraines are a weekly sometimes daily occurence, my periods have all but disappeared. My thyroid has been checked several times, all normal, I have been checked for pituitary tumour and every form of thyroid illness that he could think of. My knees hurt, I can't sleep unless medicated, my back hurts especially when I lay down. I am now noticing a new symptom almost a mania. I have been on depression medication for years and now I am having really really good days but by early evening I am in a depressive hole. I am craving food like crazy and surprisingly not junk food. I am having 2 dinners a night, which certainly can't be helping my weight and I have gone up from my weight in 2009 of 42kgs, to 60kgs. It is really interfering with my life. I want something sorted and , other than telling me my adrenals are stuffed and given me some homeopathics even my naturopath doesn't get it.
Anyone got any ideas?
