Hello. I was diagnosed with Graves two years ago and have been on Carbimazole ever since. I have a long term history of depression as well. I have recently stopped the meds having been in low ranges on my blood tests for over a year. I have found that I am perfectly fine until I get stressed. I have been very lucky in that I have been able to continue working thanks to very understanding employers, however I have some highly stress inducing colleagues that can't be reasoned with. I am aware that this is my problem that I can't handle them, not theirs. I wonder if anyone has found any effective ways of dealing with stress and how to calm down from an anxiety attack. I have found breathing exercises and meditation very difficult as my brain just keeps going even if my body is relaxed. If anyone has any advice it would be very gratefully received as I don't want to have to leave my job.
