Hi Anissa,

thanks again for writing. Personally, I am out of whack,
not merely hormonal. All kidding aside, I had that
checked, everything is balanced (somehow just saying
everything is balanced is funny to me!)

My stuff goes way back. Talked with therapist yesterday
and she said the reasons it is to her genetic and
enviro, but genetic primarily 1) family history
of depression 2)alcoholism is family 3)the chronic
suffering I have and length of time.

I was trying to get away from the genetic part because
it sounds so bloody permanent, but alas I cannot.
My therapist is wonderful. I like my shrink. I get
pissed off at him, but he is very likeable. What is
good is that he is very funny and I always feel
better from that (makes sense, I did a term
paper on placebos in college for my psych class
and laughter does play a key role...) So I want
more of that, not drugs. But that is not why I go.
My theory is this, everyone has something to share, some
light to shed on something and if you see people
day in and day out who are depressed, there must
be something more you can and WANT to offer them
besides pills.

You know what myproblem is? Too much idealism and
expectation where it does not belong. Also a moderate
dose of denial!

I had an okay day. Thank you for wishing me well. Please
keep in touch. And have a beauty yourself!
