    I am starting to think of trying anti-depressants again, but I cannot use serotonin re-uptake inhibitors as they mess with my stomach too severely. I have tried St. Johns wart in the past without success. Talk therapy has always helped and it still does, but I am just unable to get over that hump.

    I went to therapy for 15 years @Oli, but when my insurance carrier changed, my therapist was not in the new network, and I was not willing to switch to someone new. I was doing much better and thought I did not need to continue. I may go back at some time, but I for now. I am just using a tune up now and then with one my insurance pays.

    I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately and feeling more stressed and depressed then usual.

    It was a weekend of funerals and birthday parties. The birthday parties were harder on me. I do not do well socializing with people that expect me to smile, be happy and have fun. I have a lot of trouble doing those things with others around. I spent last night, ignoring my age, and turning on the xbox for a couple hours before reading. I crave…[Read more]
