Thank you very much for your kind reply! I've always wanted to have a hair test done so I'll keep that in mind as it does make sense to me.
I really could kick myself because I'd actually been doing very well mood-wise until shortly after I broke my gluten and dairy-free diet back in February. I did the same thing last August, which was after a period of a lot of stress, and soon began to feel depressed, then this unrelenting and overwhelming fatigue, and by October had a full-on thyroiditis attack with palpitations/tachycardia and sort of like panic attacks, also obstructive apnea (from the thyroid swelling) so trying to sleep was hard. But with a couple of simple remedies I found on EarthClinic.com everything quickly calmed down. By then I was sleeping mostly at night so my mood also improved a whole lot, and through most of the winter I felt way better than I had most of the year. Then I guess I took my progress for granted and now got myself a little deeper "in the hole".
About the supps, 1) I always take Vit. C but not that much, only recently I began to take about 2g/day; it's kind of hard for me to remember when to take what but I'll try to do better.. 2) I don't plan on taking licorice because a naturopath told me years ago to avoid it due to my b/p's tendency to go up rather than down. 3) I use Real Salt in my food but I have a question, should I ingest 1 tsp. in addition to that? I do know I cannot eat much salt a few hours before going to bed or my hands will swell up while I sleep and go numb and wake me up... 4) I knew Pantothenic Acid is essential in dealing with stress but had forgotten whatever I'd read about panthetine, time to hit the books again and/or do a search, I'm planning to place an order of supps in a day or two so I might include it in it. 5) I'd also been taking a B-complex daily (but sometimes I'd forget...) and recently began trying to take it 2x/day because even Adele Davis "back in the day" always said it was absolutely essential for adrenal health.
