Had a fantastic morning. Went to see this new shrink and she's very nice. Prescribed me medication which I'm willing to try, if it's no good we'll try something else. So nice to have a bit of a support system again. Now I'll get a new psychologist as well.

Also had a lovely talk to the ladies in the pharmacy nearby - and I didn't get too crazy, which is always a relief.

Just got a 4wd 97 honda passport ex for $1000 and it's in great shape still. I think this is gonna help us get out more and do more things together. We've both been depressed lately, but life has actually started to improve for us both quite recently and looks like its continuing that way. Real solid financial stability seems to be headed our way.

It would be embarrassing if we actually worked together. I haven't bothered learning the names or getting to know anyone at work yet beyond my team. Will have to put in some effort on that.
It's pretty normal for someone to say "good morning" but glad you got excited by it. Learning names is my difficulty, I think it's a part of SA, maybe anxiety makes it more difficult to remember names. I used to be great with names when I was outgoing....i always say that... "when I was outgoing".

It isn't normal to speak to strangers here unless you know them or have a reason to... so when it happens, it definitely gives me pause. I definitely don't speak to people without reason (especially during the morning rush hour).

This isn't exactly a small town.

My day was a bit of a whirlwind but the nice people throughout the day made up for it.

Saw my new psychiatrist again today and I think she's going to be okay. Started Lithium a few hours ago and so far so good. Thank God because I was scared to try it for years.

Went for a run/walk for an hour and 30 minutes in the woods. It was really nice, even though I got caught in the rain for a portion of it.

I think itís bizarre that some people can mistake me for 18. I know most donít, but when people do? I donít feel like a dinosaur and thatís kinda nice.
