Hurrah for a big company..

One of the best benefits of working for a company (and on a campus) so large is all the little extra things they keep around. Like a campus locksmith. For free. And that didn't ruin my door by jimmying the lock yesterday. It did however take him almost five minutes to get the thing OUT of my door after he got it stuck. But that was a possibly horrendous situation made shockingly easy with the free service offered by the campus.

There's not much else to tell. I'm still not sleeping well. I have another drs. appt. next week, as well as an eye doctor appt. over the weekend. Matt's suggested I look into finding a psychiatrist as well, if for nothing more than to look into antidepressants. *shrug* I don't think I'm depressed. But I do think that this whole sleep/funk thing is maybe caused by an chemical/hormonal imbalance. My mother suggested that I have too much estrogen in my system. So yeah, that's not interesting.

I'm having similar issues. They finally decided to take blood today.

My husband, who is a psychologist, believes you may be depressed. I relayed him some of your problems (as I was telling him why Awne hadn't been on much lately) and he works with people with mental illnesses and substance abuse issues.

I think you might want to look into it, at least. To rule it out if nothing?

*nods* I think it's a tricky issue (as are many things). I don't think I'm depressed and neither does my husband. But I did some reading last night on depression, and know I fit many of the symptoms. The one thing that makes me discount it is that - I have the want, but not the energy. (Ex. I want to write, play WoW and even draw lately, I just don't feel physically up to it.) And honestly I don't know how big a difference that makes from being depressed or not.

I think I'm going to try and find someone, our insurance coverers bi-monthly visits to a psychologist, I'm just not sure about the outcome.

I do miss you girls. WoW just takes energy I don't have lately. So what I do have goes into Roller Coaster Tycoon. *grin*

I'm here to tell you from my own experience that depression DOES rob you of your strength and energy. Also, depression does NOT equate to mental illness (as in psychotic, schizoid, etc). It could be the matter of a slight imbalance in the brain chemicals. Anyway, I'm thinking about you a lot lately.

Glad the car key episode ended on a good note!
