Hypothyroid?: Very unlikely ! I strongly recommend you get an appointment to see a Psychologist. She will carefully evaluate your issues and it would not surprise if the Psychologist will work well with you. The only downside concern is the dry hair and skin. For that problem you need to see your Primary doctor as soon as possible. Hope things work out. Please let me know how things go.
