From this study (1 month ago):
Just don't feel well every day. Feel crappy every day. Blood sugars are okay. I spend every weekend on the couch with headache and stress. Takes me days to get over the stress of the work week. This has been happening for more than 2 years. My MD has given me anti-depressants twice, which only makes things worse. My thyroid readings are low, but the MDs I've gone to don't want to do anything about that since they're still within the "normal" range. I don't want normal ... I want optimal! How frustrating!
