I went to see Dr. Lounette Humphrey yesterday afternoon.  She's a psychiatrist at the U of L Medical Center.  She asked me a bunch of questions, but didn't really do a lot of back and forth.  Mostly, she'd say "Have you ever [insert anything here] ?" and I'd say "No." and she'd write something down.  She was nice, and helpful, and very smart, but I can't really say that she made me feel much better.... yet.  The "yet" is because she seemed pretty confident that she could, in time.  She diagnosed me officailly as being depressed and perscribed Zoloft.

Her prediction:

I can't say I am 100% convinced it will work, but when she said "Depression changes the whole way in which you see the world around you." - I realized she may know what she's talking about... truer words have never been said.  I look at everything different.  And even though I am acting more like the old Bean I was a month ago, I don't feel at all like him.  So, 50 mg, down the hatch, every morning, for the next 2 weeks, and maybe I'll be fixed.  The problem I have with taking pills to fix me is that it just further reduces me and my mind to something that is the sum of it's parts - a semi-programmable meat computer that happens to be shorting out right now.
