Though I was emotionally low, I wouldn't say I was depressed, as I have suffered with bouts of depression on and off thoughout my life, beginning as a seasonal depression in my 20's and leading up
to a 4 year long struggle in my 30's. I lost weight during
this time in 2010 as well, had low energy levels and felt like my brain was under a sheet of fog. My joints and muscles hurt all the time. Blood work revealed elevated ferritin levels and GGT and ALT liver enzymes.
