hmmm..yeah, I don't know. I wonder if they are just thinking about me?

> Anger at the world is a natural response to having a serious disorder and is one part of coming to terms with things. I suppose its sort of also related of the process of realizing that you can't control the world and coming to terms with what concerns you. Personally at least, I can identify that.

I don't know if I have a serious disorder or not though, that's the thing...it's just that I might do better on medication.
I really don't know Jay
I seriously can't tell

> There's ways of looking at medication too, I mean, I have polypharmacy and I look at the bottles in front of me and I'm in a situation where I have to take certain medications I'd rather not have to and sometimes thoughts enter about this is the medication I don't want to take, etc. Other times I'm sort of just fatalistic about side effects and just take them as is.

oh yeah, the side effects suck
I can't stand the seroquel sedation, but it chills me out, stops the thinking, thinking, thinking
It seems harder to function on less effexor
and the klonopin just cuts the edge off, makes things a little less painful

I've got a litte pill box. It has a picture of freud on it (laying on a couch) with a little cartoon bubble thing that says ("take your meds!")
