Girly gets that. But I don't think it's doing more harm than good. I can drink a litre of vodka in a night and still go to work the next day. That's not a good thing. If I have a little puff the magic dragon, half-pint/pint feels sufficient. That's gotta be easier on my liver than a litre.

Sounds like a worry you don't need to worry about until someone makes it an issue.

I don't even try to understand it at this point, brother. I just fucking accept and deal with it. Wink

RE: The Depression/Anxiety Thread
I just want to say amen to what the GirlyApe said. Sometimes seeing my thoughts on the screen help bring me back from the brink of insanity and I can think about what reality is all about versus the fantasizing about the worst case scenario disaster happening to me because I feel a wee bit out of sorts emotionally.

Re vodka.
Had my regular liver function tests done last week and was hoping, after cutting way back on the wine, for a better GTT enzyme reading......ye gods, it was up double the last four years average. New doc had put me on an anti-depressant (Aurorix) not available U.S, and thinks that might be the culprit. Sent me for an ultra sound.

Hope your getting regular checks G.M. Huh

Every quarter, brother. Still lower middle range. But I'm starting to get bored with it.

GTT enzyme over 200, stats get dicey; I am no where near that. In Aust under 50 is recommended and after 6months on the reversible mono amine oxidizer my GTT was up to 132.

RE: The Depression/Anxiety Thread
bemore I get that anxiety about work. I used to have it myself but really, if you call in sick even more your anxiety will get worse because with each day you put more pressure on yourself.
If you just come back indeed, they will be ok with you having been sick. And you do already know it. So just push yourself to work and you will see how good it feels and the release that you did not lose your job over a week sick Smile

Start worrying about losing your job when they call you in for a chat or send you something official.

RE: The Depression/Anxiety Thread
Back when I went nuts, after a death in the family, my therapist was totally inept, and I really had to figure out what I needed, and change docs, and suffer, until I could get in to a shrink, for hard core meds.

Now that it's a thing of the past, I'm thinking of making an appointment, and going in, and quietly, but firmly explaining how totally unhelpful he was.

What do ya think. Should I drop it, and forget it, or let him have it ?

He's just going to analyze your motives for why you feel you are wanting to tell him off. Then you'll feel even more conflicted!

A letter, maybe?

With a copy to the board of registration?

Certainly cheaper than scheduling a session!
