Wow, what a rocky month for you! I've mentioned before that I am not on meds but am going to a pdoc for the first time in a couple of weeks. I'm quite anxious! I am afraid that while treating the underlying instability in me, medication will just bring about another set of problems. Perhaps the therapeutic value of medication is to distract you from what was wrong in the first place? I mean, if I gained 10 lbs of water weight, I'd have a whole new reason for depression!

I thought it was awesome that you were able to tell her how you felt about her insensitivity last time! Starting off like that, I'm sure, will cause her to always choose her words carefully in the future. It sounds like you like and respect her more now, which is great. She sounds like she comes up with out-of-the-box solutions such as the light box, that she is really deliberating over you.

I'm sure there was connection to your T leaving and calling the pdoc. It gave you time and the impetus to continue working on your well-being. I'm glad she's willing to do some therapy with you too. I guess I don't fully understand the "only one T" rule -- I think two (or three, or four) heads are better than one. Why not get all the help you can?

I hope the meds start working for you soon. I'm glad you gave her a second chance. Sounds like it was worth it!
