Both these guys had cats! Whoo hoo! Go cat people!
I am disappointed because one of them is leaving Hamilton. :(
I just wanted to say that to those who are encouraging me to go down this path, I trust you.
I have never been so scared in my life. Not even the time I almost fell off a cliff. But I am going to walk this road, no matter how terrifying it gets and take comfort in the fear.
This seems so difficult, taking these steps. Especially when I feel alone. But I am beginning to learn when to buckle up and face things on my own and when to ask for help. Everyone needs help sometimes, I've been told that, but I think in the past I was leaning too much. Especially since the majority of those willing to support me have their own weaknesses they need support for.
Wow. That reminds me of that tree poem I wrote in grade eight.
So the doctor basically gave me a choice between Paxil and Celexa. I took Celexa, it scares me less. I have heard too much bad things about Paxil. It kinda traumatised me to read the profile they have on me there. It makes everything so impersonal.
I think part of what makes this entire direction so difficult is that I'm admitting that I can't do this on my own. Do you know how hard that is for an independant who has been self-sufficient since they were, like, eight?
So I've got two referrals to two different shrinks. That'll be another 2 doctors to my list of, what now, six? Go me.
So on Monday I am finding out how dumb I am. Actually, the WAIS (IQ test) is basically used to find out if you're underachieving. I hope it'll be fun.
While studying for Linguistics, I discovered that Dr. Seuss invented the word nerd. And seeing as how it's geek week, I think we should all celebrate.
HAPPY GEEK WEEK EVERYONE!
