Depression. SUX.

Saw the Helpful Psychiatrist today.  She’s very good, but right now – everything is very …meh.  We’re increasing the main med1cat1on a LOT in an attempt to get me out of this slump.

The problem with b1polar depress1on, as the HP acknowledged today, is that sometimes  a placebo can be just as effective as anything she can offer.  I have had periods of utterly horrible depress10n where one morning I have just woken up and things have suddenly been okay again.

I have also had periods of b1polar depress1on where nothing – NOTHING – has helped for a year or more.

And there’s no way of telling which one will be which.

Still no result for the first uni assignment, although the lecturer reckons they should be up this week… we’ve just finished two weeks break and the lecture tomorrow morning is on Rhetoric.  I have been enjoying this book:

A very readable book on rhetoric


and let’s hope tomorrow’s lecture is more useful than this:

although I have my doubts….
