- A life of depression and fatigue
1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.

My hair has changed from a slightly wavy thick head of, to frizzy, still a good lot of hair. I did have a 1 month spell of more than usual hair loss. I have been on Prednisolone since July 2013 30grm a day to start with reducing, at present 9 mg per day. The texture and look is not sitting well with me.

From this study (2 years ago):
My ankles swell about a hour after I awake in the morning. They go down at night. I have not gained any more weight. I am on a low sodium diet and have stopped eating anything with sugar in it for the last two months. I increased my water intake. I drink about 64 ounces of water a day. I urinate every two hours all day long. It used to be only at night now it is every two hours all day. My blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure are all great with the medications. This is my 4th year on tamoxifen. I took arimidex for 5 years prior. Cancer was found on the skin that was saved after my mastectomy after 5 years. I had radiation therapy. This was four years ago.
