Glad to hear things are going somewhat better for you, and I hope the Effexor starts working again. I took it for about a year but it just numbed me.

Yeah, I think IOP has been good for me, but only to find out yesterday that my insurance doesn't want to cover any more sessions. My pdoc is very upset and offered to call or write them. I think I will let him. He said to me today, "Maybe I'll call them and say 'Okay, if you don't want her as an outpatient, then you'd prefer that she was an inpatient?' I mean, what do they want when what we're trying to do is keep you out of the hospital?" He was not a happy man and I'm sure he had a few more chosen words he could have used if he wasn't being polite b/c of me. I love my pdoc.

So, yeah, I'm *supposed* to be working on my goals in IOP, but don't know if I'll be able to stay in the program. My goals are things like, "Able to express anger regarding parents and connections between problems while growing up and problems today" and "Verbally states that she is no longer having suicidal urges." I think, once again, it's taking me longer to get through this stuff than they would have anticipated. The only one I've crossed off is "Verbally expressed understanding of connection between depressed mood and anger from childhood". Four to go...if I get the chance with my stupid freakin' insurance.

Anyway, I didn't get the job I had interviewed for, and got that news yesterday too. Yesterday sucked. Not sure today has been any better. My pdoc's raising my lamictal dose and I have to go in tomorrow for bloodwork. Yay.

I'll keep you posted, and you do the same.
