Ahh, yes, the fine balance between not depressed and not manic, a sacred place.I hope the Effexor does the trick for you, it is just as important like you say. I am doing fine. I was scared I was going manic last night , but I think it was too much caffeine which I really shouldn't be ingesting! Anyhow, things have smoothed out and I feel "normal"-I wish all the same for you too! Take care and hang in there!
