After careful consideration, my husband has decided that I am a chestnut.
"I dunno, I never had a chestnut"
Why did you say I'm a chestnut?!?
"I think you should be peanuts."

So, you worry that because you've got a number stamped on your forehead, you've got less right to suffer or feel? That your feelings are either real to you in the moment, or complete lunacy when the feeling has passed? That doctors will call you a hypochondriac, in terms of your mental symptoms? Do you take your own feelings seriously?

Sorry for that interrogation :( I hate interrogating!

Hmm let's see... Here's how my last pdoc visit went. This is the one from 5 days ago, when he asked me how things are going since major med changes:

"umm... okay... I'm a little tired... hard to get up in the is okay... I'm super stressed out... been feeling pretty depressed... suicidal feelings diminished..."

and the ellipses are symbolic of the random mumblings of an unprepared patient, who's worried that the doctor might misinterpret her- think she's addicted to benzodiazepine if I say that it's been helpful.

Is this a problem about Racer interpreting her Self, or a problem about Racer's Self being misinterpreted by her new pdoc?

I'm confused. Not that I'm not ALWAYS confused, but I thought this was an existential crisis. Now I'm not convinced that it is? or maybe not? or maybe has some elements of existential crisis? or?

Remember that your body is different than it was the last time you took those drugs. Ask your pdoc if you can do a slow, even titration, rather than go up in big stages or start right away at a therapeutic dose.

Remember that your new pdoc may be like my pdoc, who gives me one med to help me with the side effects of the other drug ... etc. You may not have to suffer with the same sideeffects that you did earlier, especially if you use a few drugs that "augment" I LOVE that word! each other.

What are the soul-suckers from Azkaban called? Augmentors? Why do I have that association?

Hope your homework got done in little chunks in between your squirrel running around in the limbs and frantically burying acorns.

My husband has just told me that he feels jealous, because I write to "these people" (psycho-babble) a lot. I just told him that I'd write to him a lot too, if ever wrote to me. *grin*. point taken. Now he's back to serenading me with Schumann and asking me for a music lesson, which I'm unwilling to give. I'm trying my best to ignore him, as he asks me about various phrases and such...

pdockery is so much more interesting than Schumann. Poor Schumann...

I'm suffering from acute excessive perspiration of ellipses. They are dripping... all over... the page...

xoxo Racer,
