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.

Seems like without Jei, things kinda crumbled~

It happens regardless of whether Jei's around or not, unfortunately. It was just as bad last year when we were living together. I went on medication that time, but this time I really really want to find the root cause and try to eliminate the problem altogether.

Depressed but not as bad as you for other reasons entirely

Ugh, S.A.D is no fun at all and I am so sorry you are going through all of this nonsense, I am really hoping the doctor gave you some answers or at least pointed you in the right direction to get you feeling a little better.

I didn't get as much info as I'd hoped, but I got a few good leads to progress from, so here's hoping! (:

I wish I could give some advice. But being from a tropical country I 've never even heard of SAD until you mentioned it, so yeah. Hope you be okay.

I hope to move to somewhere a little more tropical myself, someday XD And thanks (:

Hey, you alright now? What the doctor say?

And say, you need anything to read?

Ooh, I hope you don't have a thyroid problem! Those are common in my family and tend to be pretty rubbish.

I hope you'll find the answers you seek and the treatment you need!

Thanks, Bird (: I'll be getting bloods taken tomorrow (fun!), so hopefully I'll know in a week or so if there's a physical problem like a thyroid issue.

Alright, good luck!

Fortunately, having blood drawn isn't as painful as some injections (there's no awful, stingy, burning sensation for one thing!), so that's good. I don't mind it (and I'm not exactly known for my love of needles or anything), so I hope it's just as relatively painless for you! x3

I actually don't mind the pain, that's just a brief sting. The part I hate is the tight strap around my arm and having to clench and open my fist repeatedly to keep the blood flowing. Just feels weird, man ):

Right! ^^

Ooh, yes, the strap isn't a lot of fun. Sorry about that! ^^;
