I like your signature! Thanks for the reply. In answer to your question, the effexor is in for depression that is part reaction to adjusting to the "stuff" of disease-land and depression is also part of the diseases themselves.
I am in the same boat in that I'm not taking the time I really need to fully deal. But I have to admit that I'm happy that the effexor seems to have kicked in quickly. I'm just glad to be out of the dark corner of the basement!
I'm good at journaling and that does help me a lot. I'm not driving right now (due to some neuro issues that should be resolved at some point) so i can't start the search for a new therapist. But somehow, each day gotta keep going. I figure that's my job even if I can't figure out why at the moment!
thanks again for your help.
