Right now, I am dealing with the ramifications of depression - and doing my best to work my way through to the other side.
At the moment I'm out of work and collecting the money I spent years paying into the state disability system. I am seeing a counselor, and am taking Wellbutrin through a prescription from my primary care doctor. My counselor thinks I've got adult attention deficit disorder, and the clutter that has become my life would bear that out. I have a prescription for ritalin, but for a man of 50-plus to get that paid for through insurance is a pain. I will soon be seeking out a psychiatrist to see if I need to have my meds adjusted. I was hoping it wouldn't have to come to that, but it has.
My main job right now is to play house husband and tend to the needs of Kathleen, who is working but has some physical problems of her own.
I give thanks for each and every day and every new chance. Compared to many, I have little to complain about. I just believe in being as open and honest with my MC family as I can be. Sometimes my posts can be more negative than I'd like...and that's generally when I need to just back away from the keyboard.
I also wanted to create a space for others dealing with similar issues, to feel free to share their feelings.
MiceChat and my many pleasant memories of Disneyland particularly, present and past, help keep me going...
