Thanks Maddie,
this helps me put things in perspective. Yes, I *did* have a good morning, which I was all too quick to dismiss when the darkness descended.

Maybe I do fight too hard against my mood swings. Being a easy-going marshmallow sounds tempting. I just have to find a way to become a marshmallow without engaging in self-destructive behaviors. Maybe I should renew my netflix subscription and engage in more veg-out sessions on my couch to distract me from other temptations.

I hope that my cymbalta will kick in soon, so that I will have a little more motivation and will to get out and exercise, or read, or something other than wallowing in my own psychopathology. For now, I'm just struggling to do the bare minimum to sustain my career, my weight, my relationships. This is my first medication, indeed my first personal experience with therapy or psychopharmacology (aside from my coursework, that is...) so, I know i'm being unreasonably impatient. I just want some relief.

you ask what I'm taking- i'm on day 6 of 30 mg cymbalta and now I take 25 mg seroquel.
