Not what I wanted to hear

The GP thinks I am depressed and in a bipolar swing downwards - for months. Unless my bloodwork comes back with a story (e.g., Lymes Disease), that's his story and he's sticking to it. Alas.

Yesterday I told my therapist that I would try to get in some EEG to get down my anxiety. I am going to the one that is helping with the upcoming workshop, not the one I got 60 free sessions. It might turn out that the latter caused my angst, her priming my focus/concentration for the ADHD test in July when speeding up those waves (beta) is contrary to my already high beta. She baited me for better results on the test.

Maybe I found the solution for myself.

This is all so frustrating b/c nobody works harder on mental health than I, yet I often get the shaft somehow.

I'll check back in and hopefully I will have a marked improvement right off. It's not out of the realm of possibility.

Sorry about your bad-mental-health news; I have been in such a slump, don't seem to be able to set aside any "ME" time just to THINK, let along blog about it...(as I cast another anxious glance at the full laundry basket & unvacuumed floor)
