The Verdict is in...

I'm crazy!

Not really...but my therapist has now presented the idea that perhaps I should try some medication. I had more than a twinge of validation, because I've wondered for years whether or not I was 'clinically depressed'... however, because I tend to yo-yo I always knew that eventually I'd be on the upswing again so I never really pushed the issue. Plus, I've been in therapy off and on for almost 10 years. My previous therapist didn't think I needed to be medicated. I've been going to this particular counselor for a year now, and she noticed the yo-yo-ing. She thinks perhaps an antidepressant might level me out some. Oh, how nice it would be to have a little less dread regarding social functions, not be constantly bummed out about day to day things, and not feel like the worlds doormat. Next time I go she's going to teach me some relaxation techniques, because I've been having some insomnia.

LOL. Last comment.

If all else fails, meds might work. I've been on them twice. I started 2 years ago and stopped last summer because I thought I was o.k. Then I took a plunge into the dark side.. I'm back on the meds and feeling much better.
