First impressions I really liked her. I have been around the block with this mental health stuff for about 20 years and I'm pretty good about sensing one that is on thier toes and she seems to be. I explained to her growing up with the deaths the alcholism the abuse so forth... She told me it's not uncommon for someone who has been what I have been through to suffer with depression and anxiety disorders. She doubts I'm bipolar ( I didn't think I was either) so will keep working and see what we can accomplish.
She does think I need meds though and thinks I would benifit from dopamine. I just upped my effexor to 225 I'll give that some time and see how it goes but so far I've still been in the pit of depression on effexor.
Today is the anniversary of my mothers death 24 years. I called my Aunt yesterday and because I'm in Mississippi and everyone else is in NJ she will put flowers on my mothers grave for me.
God I miss her so . I'd give anything to have one more day with her... Thanks your all so special here...:)
