For those of you who are wondering where is Mouse’s mental illness(es), and why isn’t she showing it or talking about it?
I suppose I am in a kind of remission.
Don’t want to jinx anything, but I have never been happier and more mentally stable than I am right at this point in time. Certain there are things that try to derail it, but I try not to let it get to me like it got to me in September 2014. That was just a bad month.
Changes may be on the way, though, in terms of the medication front. I’ve only been on Doctor’s waiting list since September – I have to call his office and try to just outright set up an appointment, because it’s sorta silly to be kept waiting. I’ll keep you posted.
Besides, quoting Susanna Kaysen, “I can honestly say that my misery has been transformed into common unhappiness, so by Freud’s definition, I have achieved mental health.”
So, you know, there it is.
(Not that I take great stock in anything Freud had to say, though he did have some good points.)
