my mother has always had Thyroid issues a few years ago she had a Thyroid storm which caused graves disease.
she was catatonic for almost 2 weeks in the hospital before she was brought to the hospital she was having hallucinations, she didn't dare tell anyone because she was afraid she was having a mental break down. after a summer of hallucinations & being a little bit "off" my mom full blown lost it one day first saying it was the end of the world, walking around naked (at home) in high heels and saying alot of things that would never come out of my moms mouth. she spent almost a month in the hospital getting her thyroid levels back to normal and in the end the Dr.'s decided just to remove the thing.
She is completely back to normal now and thankfully is relieved of all the anxieties that once was normal for her.
alot of people are diagnosed with being bipolar when truly its a thyroid thing. My grandmother has now started controlling here anxieties and spikes in her behavior
I now get my levels checked when going to the doctors
Hormones are a bitch
