I think Allison's answer was great. To me, good enough is:
(1) not wanting to die more than anything else in the world,
(2) having most of the day be functional enough (job-wise) to pay my bills (a form of security, I think),
(3) being able to sleep,
(4) removing my outside doormat that says "GO AWAY",
(5) believing I'm not one step away from the homeless shelter,
(6) not being phobic about going outside the house,
(7) not waking up with/from a panic attack,
(8) not ignoring the fact that the water and electric will be turned off any day now--has to do with capability to deal with real life, I think.,
(9) not isolating totally,
there are more...but, it just spirals down from the above.

My "best" was when I was on Zoloft, and I had energy, could sleep (with meds), and was actually outgoing to some extent. I guess Balance would describe it, but to my (depressed) self, it felt like 1,000 miles per hour.

Sorry for the vent. I guess I'd just like all that stuff I wrote about, and at 54, it ain't lookin' all that good.

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it--

Hope you find your 'Balance' Fineline Bob,
