>Hi Paige,

Thank you for your response. I was thinking about this yesterday while I was driving and then suddenly thought that maybe I was out of line. What do I know, right :) Anyway, I was also thinking that maybe that perhaps your hormones were out of whack..so to speak...possible?

Also, in regards to your current doctor. I have been told by doctors that actual psychiastrist's (pardon the spelling...just woke up..brain still slow) that they really are not the ones that should do the counseling (therapy work). The should prescribe the medication and that is it. Generally a counselor should be the specialist in the therapy area. which actualy might save you money. If you saw your psychiatrist once a month and a therapist once a week, that would be better. Many counselors work on a sliding scale.
Just something to think about :)

I hope you have a wonderful day :)
