I am so sorry you are mid-anxiety right now. I've been there and it really sucks. It's the constant grinding in my head that makes me feel so out of my mind.

I think it is interesting how different people react to diagnosis. Some people hear the words bipolar or chronic depression and they immediately relax against it. "So THAT's what is wrong with me". I'm not crazy - I am SICK!

Others fight the diagnosis all the way - seemingly spurred on by a desire to remain "perfect" despite the life-altering symptoms they may be experiencing.

Neither approach is right. Although the previous might be easier.

It seems to me that it comes down to some decisions on your part.

Do you think the side effects of the drugs recommended for you are going to be worse than the symptoms they are designed to alleviate?

Is having a diagnosis of ANY value to your treatment?

Is this issue really a problem for you or is it something that the anxiety has just attached itself to?

I can't tell you what to do about your situation, in fact there is very little I can do to offer you comfort about it right now.

Except to possibly say you need a break from it. Somehow, someway you need to find some peace in your mind.

I guess we all do.

I'm thinking about you today.
