Couldn't agree more.
Thanks roger, I appreciate that.
I had an ephiany once, over 6 simple words.
When it was first proposed I get on Zoloft, I had to go through a pychiatrist for the order. Ended up seeing her, I don't know, 3 or 4 times over the course of a year, for followup.
Regarding 2 separate visits....She would always ask me what was going on, and at one visit I told her how my cat Lulu had to be put to sleep. I got really tearful of course. I remember saying how all she did was give love and accept who I was. I said "Lulu never once told me I was wrong, or I shouldn't be doing something different, or I wasn't smart, pretty, good enough etc. We loved each other just the way we were.
I'm sure all you pet owners out there can identify with that. Contrast that that with the people that raised me.
I tell the above as it related to another subsequent visit. I think it was my last one. We talked for awhile, made sure my meds were at the proper dosage etc, and she started wrapping it up. Suddenly I remembered something "Oh my God! I forgot to tell you! My mother died a couple of weeks ago." I felt really strange that I had forgottten about that, and told her that made me feel bad. She asked me why I felt bad. "Well, because....because everyone says you're supposed to feel bad when your mother dies, even if you didn't get along. I don't feel bad at all."
She just said "Yes. Everyone does say that, don't they
