Well, therapy is going well- I've been in it for almost a month (maybe shorter or longer, time runs together) and finally understand what I have... Kind of... My therapist seems to think that I'm either dealing with anxiety and depression together, or that I might have a trace of bipolar disorder due to my family history with it.  So now I'm on my way within the next couple of weeks to meet with a psychiatrist and (hopefully) get on meds for my problem.. I'm super anxious about meeting with an MD, since I'm really scared of doctors and traveling, so it should be interesting... Since there has to be three different meetings with him, though, it's going to take a while to actually see what I'm going to have to have chemically, so I'm just trying not fall off the edge before that and... Yeah, it's hard. You all know that. 
 
Just thought I'd make an update since I haven't been on in a while.  Hope everything is going well with all of you!

Hi Neverbetter,

I am so glad that you popped in. I must say that I am glad that you are seeing a pdoc. I see one and I am glad that I do. They seem so smart when it comes to medications. I have had one before that I didn't particularly care for, but they aren't all bad. So I hope that you get a good one and that they are able to get you on the right medications. Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen

good on you for seeking approriate treatment. psychiatrists are human beings too. i understand the nerves, we all go through it, and i know that after a session or 2 you will be okay with him/her. i wish you well, with healing compassion, jamie. thx for the update.
