... just trying to make conversation, I guess. Never intended to upset you, honestly. I have a way of questioning that, when you know me in the flesh, just feels like a little bit of playful prodding, sort of like: "Here - try on this new suit of clothing!" Sometmes people respond well to it, sometimes they don't. Of course, that's hard to convey in writing and on the internet.

I wasn't dx'd by the GYN, he gave me Zoloft for the irritability and anger. I was in therapy at the time, she (a social worker) thought it was plain ol' vanilla depression with the perimenopause, and a little anxiety thrown in. I was dx'd, I hope properly, a little more than a year ago by my therapist (who can also prescribe meds - she's a nurse practitioner who specializes in psychiatry). It was she who dx'd the bipolar. So maybe it's hard for me to keep meds and therapy apart, they are just two sides of the same coin (bad metaphor, couldn't think of a better one right now). In that my therapist is also the person who prescribes my meds. Does this make any sense at all?

Again, will keep meds to the med board, didn't mean to stray so far afield, and never meant harm. I'm so sorry, Beardy...
