Hi violette,

It's really hard to know why she had such a reaction. I understand that it's possible that she even didn't carefully considered being cynic about my improvement. Maybe that was just her natural reaction. When I first started therapy, she was quite analytic and used to write every single thing down. Now it seems that she uses a more natural and talk-wise approach.

The problem is that I'm currently pretty lonely, so her opinion sounds all-important in my mind. I felt the need to smooth that feeling out thinking "maybe I'm just too hyper". And, of course, when we're more imaginative sometimes we start thinking stupid things. Guess you know the feeling.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with her, so let's feel how it goes. At one point I'll need to assume that I'm no longer sick and this is just my natural ups-and-downs... As I just got off a strong depression episode, that's still not so clear to me.

I liked your idea of taking a stimulant. Maybe if I feel I'm inevitably going down I'll consider that. Have you tried Bupropion? It was the AD that really picked me up when I was really unmotivated and mentally impaired. And the great Xanax is always at hand (very low dose like 0.25 or 0.5 mg).

Thank you, have a nice day!
