Back in mid-2007, after a month of therapy, a psychiatrist confirmed what others and I had suspected for many years – I suffer from depression, and probably have been all of my life.
As a result, the therapy continued and I was prescribed anti-depressants (which at first I was very reluctant about taking).
Fortunately, the therapy and the medication have been two of the best things I have ever done.
Since mid-2007, my life has gotten much better and continues to improve. There are still times when the black dog bites hard and there are several related problems still to resolve – but I am getting there, one day at a time at one hour at a time.
This blog is an ongoing journal of my experiences.
