Ugh, so this depression/anxiety/SAD thing is kicking my butt. I've also had annoying symptoms for a while which seem to point towards IBS, which is often tied in with stress, depression and anxiety, although it could be a food intolerance too. Anyways, I'm going to the doctor in a couple of hours and I'm going to ask her for three things:

- A test for celiacs/gluten intolerance and other physical digestive problems to rule out certain causes of IBS symptoms
- A blood test to screen for a thyroid problem, in case the anxiety stems from there
- A referral to a mental health professional to see whether CBT or a similar therapy might help

I figure if I attack this thing from all angles, I'll get to the root of it somehow. It's just been going on for far too long and it's seriously cramping my style. I have so many things that I want and need to do, but I just have no motivation or interest for when I'm feeling so crappy and sick 90% of the time.

So, here's hoping for some progress from here.
