I've been living by this mantra since my first d-day in 2008. It was necessary in the beginning, thinking "I just need to make it through today."

But that survival technique has seemed to depress me. How is that living...just making it through the day?

I called over a week ago to make an appointment with a psychiatrist. I need meds, and I know it.

The first appointment...August 2nd. I took it, but asked to be added to their "cancel list" as well so that I might be moved up a little earlier.

it's good you're reaching out for help. There is a lot more to life, but sometimes we just need help finding it.

Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out...honestly
I wanna see you be brave

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect

August 2nd seems like a long time to wait. I would call some other therapists and see what you can do. We got LUCKY in that we had an appointment scheduled with the therapist we use for the kids the day after D-day so we IMMEDIATELY started caring for our brains!
