Beardy,

With all respect, and try not to think of me as the woman who parks the car in front of the post-office box... But I think you might be dysthymic. Just low-level, chronic type of thing. And I truly do not understand, in a fundamental way, why you are so opposed to meds. Everyone knows how much you hate meds, so you have the doctors frightened enough so they wouldn't even mention it to you? What would be wrong with taking a minimum dose of prozac, or whatever, which someone who WASN'T afraid of you thought would be in your best interest to prescribe? (Bad grammar, but you know what I'm saying...) You think keeping your healthcare providers afraid to say things is GOOD? I say not. Respectfully, of course, don't want my head chewed off.

I mean, look at all the people on the meds board. OH! I get it now! You don't want to have to post on another board!!! :-]
Anyway, look at them. You think they're all a bunch of fools? You think you're 'different'? I don't know, just seems you might actually be able to enjoy yourself (or at least look like you do) if you gave something a trial.

Ready for the bomb,

Wendy
