My headache has also gone away, so maybe that was related to the stress of not telling anybody. Who knows. Also, almost jumped off a bridge, but nobody saw that, so managed to downplay it enough when I told my psychiatrist to avoid hospitalization. No inclination of ever going close to a bridge again ; that shit was too tempting. So - hooray I guess. Doing a evaluation and diagnostic test next week (DSM-V).
    So. Turns out I suffer from bipolar disorder. After being diagnosed, and medicated (hello Seroquel) I am stable (mostly) and all headaches and similar physical manifestations have gone into hiding. Still have a lot of therapy to do (and do that weekly) to address anger issues and some other stuff (depression fueled suicidal thoughts for one), but in general doing much better. Turns out talking to a psychiatrist wasn't a bad idea after all.
    Seems you're doing better. Big ups, keep it up. It's nothing horrible and what matters most is your health.

    Finally did my first psychiatric checkup. Probably 20 years too late, but better than never. Don't know how I feel about it. One the one hand I'm glad I did it. One the other hand I hate the fact I have to do it and can't sort myself out.

    Psychological testing appointed and checkup in 2 weeks. I'm staring at this bottle of bupropionchloride pills I got. Tomorrow morning is gonna be an interesting day of decisions. One of the good sideffects seems to be I'm gonna start disliking cigarettes.

    :brofist: to all y'all in dis fred
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Had my first proper visit to a therapist and apparently I don't have anything pathological, just a lot of unresolved stuff that's bugging me and issues in expressing myself in interpersonal relationships that aren't professional in nature. Apparently I can cope just fine when there are well defined boundaries (e.g. Work), but there are issues when I have to set said boundaries (e.g. personal life).

    So, CBT it is, yay.
