Anon - Thanks for your comments and for sharing your story. Sounds like you've been through a lot over the years. In reading your comments I saw that you've mentioned the medications you're on, but you didn't mention whether you're getting any type of counseling that will help you deal with the emotional trauma you've been going through since 1993. Will the Mood Disorders Clinic provide that type of support or is it mainly focused on medicating you? And, do you have any kind of support system - family, friends, even strangers that you are able to talk to in an open manner? Do you have specific goals you plan to take with you to the Mood Disorders Clinic or are you waiting to see what they will do? Or do you feel so bad that you're at a loss as to what to do? Sometimes figuring out what direction we need to go in means taking some steps back to look at the overall picture and get down to our very basic needs and start from there. Does that make sense to you? Where would you like to be in one year? five years? ten years? and what do YOU think will get you there?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and hope this is helpful.
Take care, Pat
