  1. My name is Kelly, and I am a 28 year old female living in Ontario. I work full time in administration. For 2.5 years now I have been feeling "spacey" -it's a rather subjective thing to try to define or explain to a doctor, but the best descriptions I've been able to come up with so far are that I feel like I am always stoned on cold medicine, or like I have the feeling you get when you're sick with a bad cold and say you feel like you're walking around in a dream. I am always tired, would love to just sleep all day, and am suffering from depression (not sure if it's because of the spaciness, or the other way around.) I have also gained a significant amount of weight (partially, I realize, due to poor diet and lack of exercise, but it still seems excessive to me.) To date I have had many appointments with my family doctor, and have also seen an ear/nose/throat specialist, a hematologist, a rheumatologist, a neurologist, had a colonoscopy because of my constant loose stool/diahrrea (and have been diagnosed with IBS), had an upper g-i series, had my vision checked, had umpteen blood tests performed, had a head scan, an EEG, EKG, ECG, have seen a counsellor on several occasions, have ceased taking birth control pills - in case they might be the culprit - and am currently taking Zoloft (tried Celexa before) for depression, as well as Lorazepam occasionally as needed. I just saw an endochrinologist, who said I am borderline hypothyroid, and started me on synthroid. I've just stopped taking them because they were giving me some really strange side-effects. I'll have to go back to the dr. to talk about this. I am also scheduled to have an x-ray of my lower spine and to have my nervous system examined. My question to you is, do any of you suffer from this "spaciness"? Is there hope that I could overcome this (I am beginning to lose hope myself)? I really look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your time, Kelly
