After 13 years of "dealing with it", I finally got some help for depression. My previous doc basically blew me off in years past, and his replacement agreed that trying out a low-dose anti-depressant may be in order. Been a bit over a week, but I think I've been noticing improvements. Looking forward to week three.

Good to hear the medicine is working. It's a weird and enjoyable freeing feeling. I remember the first time I thought "that didn't bother me like it used to, the meds must be working."

It helps get you to the point of being able to find healthy ways of treating the causes instead of all of the "fun" coping mechanisms we come up with for ourselves. I'd recommend using the freedom to see a therapist. It probably won't help at first, but if you keep with it you can at least figure out the causes of the depression and get ideas about what you can do about it. I mean, any one of use can offer advice, but they're trained and hopefully can give *good* advice.

It's such a weird feeling, isn't it!?

I have dysthymia, which basically means my default is just south of "Normal." It's the stereotypical "living under a black cloud" depression. When I started my antidepressants, and they built up enough to start taking effect, it was like...

...being mildly drunk?

My one experience being drunk (and my one experience being high) shows that I'm a bubbly drunk, so, I guess that's really what it felt like. But it was just so weird feeling all of that go away.

You should gain sanity for finding out that the problems of a region are because there are fucking monsters there.
