Thanks for the update, Laura. Two months of volunteering before the Employment Disability people will help you? I hope that you'll be able to find something near your home and something that you really like to do. Laura, hair loss can be caused by so many things, but one that comes to my mind is 'thyroid'. Please try to get tested to see if you have a thyroid problem (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), as this could also be responsible for your loss of sleep and the fast talking. Here's a link to an article with a little information on that subject. http://thyroid.ab...0signs.htm
"Hair and skin are particularly vulnerable to thyroid conditions, and in particular, hair loss is frequently associated with thyroid problems. With hypothyroidism, hair frequently becomes brittle, coarse and dry, while breaking off and falling out easily. Skin can become coarse, thick, dry,and scaly. In hypothyroidism, there is often an unusual loss of hair in the outer edge of the eyebrow. With hyperthyroidism, severe hair loss can also occur, and skin can become fragile and thin."
"Hair loss is another sign that your thyroid hormones may be out of balance. Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause hair to fall out. In most cases, the hair will grow back once the thyroid disorder is treated.
"Thyroid disorders can have a noticeable impact on your energy level and mood. Hypothyroidism tends to make people feel tired, sluggish, and depressed. Hyperthyroidism can cause anxiety, problems sleeping, restlessness, and irritability."
I hope that these links will open for you, over there in England. But, I've pasted here the parts that were crucial, so that you can read them even if the links won't open. Hope you'll find something fascinating to do for your volunteer hours. - jus'
