Ahhhh. Therapeutic relief

Someone to help me stop the crazy monkeys jumping around in my head. Punctuation has returned with the assurance that the darkest of my latest night has probably passed.
A medication adjustment by the pdoc. Great huge gulping sobs by me upon leaving her office, so relieved <ashamed> <embarassed> <happy> I was to hear that I'd had one of those "seldom reported" reactions to too much Campral in my system.

And then therapy. Feeling those <bracketed> feelings that scream "loser loser you loser you"; like *I* would know what a seldom reported reaction from a relatively new medication would be like to experience. I mean, the doctor pulled out the PDR in front of me and everything (she isn't the Great And Wonderful Oz like I thought?? Or actually she is). And knowing, really knowing, that I am not a loser, that that word does not describe who I am but what I tell myself I am. Not even WHO but WHAT. So something big happened there tonight and the evening went from me not really remembering why I made the appointment, to being really satisfied with what we accomplished. Even if it's only for tonight or a while longer, it helped me.

On the other side of the wringer it is not so bad.
