Mental Health

This week my depression was upgraded from dysthymia to major depressive disorder. That doesn’t really do much to change my treatment, it just changes how much (more) the state is willing to help pay for said treatment. I won’t be able to get back on meds until I see a psychiatrist on May 14, however. That, my friends, sucks. All refills have run out and the mental health department (where I’ll be going) is backed up until May 14. That greatly saddens me, not just for myself, but for what that indicates about the mental health of my fellow citizens of Greensboro, NC. It saddens me because there just aren’t enough psychiatrists to go around.

This isn’t a sad blog post, however. Even though this has been a sort of rough week mentally (mainly due to financial woes…as always), I was also able to make this video. It was fun to write, fun to shoot, fun to edit, and very fun to watch. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve watched it like 8 times. It makes me laugh every time. They say to write for yourself and others will like it. I hope so, because I only know how to write for me. And I make me laugh 🙂

I don’t normally ask this, but if you like the video, could you give it a thumbs up if you visit the Youtube site? Also, please feel free to re-post the video or send the link to anyone you think might enjoy it or need a laugh. Like I told my friend on Twitter the other day, I’m here to bring laughter.

I’d like to leave you with this: just like weather isn’t the same thing as climate, being depressed doesn’t mean you aren’t happy.
