this was a result of musing after listening to a friend's podcast...

 

for those who perhaps have gotten this label along the way...

 

Bipolar: contemplation about the psych label

–  psych labels are horribly sticky things...and so yeah, I'm still working it out of my system...even though I undiagnosed myself years ago and so did the last shrink I worked with actually. He agreed with me. Anyway, if the label was ever applied you know what I'm talking about.

Your cat pic avatar keeps changing Gia.

And sometimes I know you are psychic.  Just what I needed today.

Thank you.  Helped. 

I think I got down(or up?) to major clinical depression for my last label.  I didn't ask.

Still working it all out of my system, changing the words I use with myself and others.

Clinicians do give me some weird form of PTSD though........maybe just make me nervous.

PTS is all the make sense to me at this point...but I won't tack D for "disorder" on the end of it...the only disorder is that which got called "medicine" assaulting my innocent body. 

I have two beautiful black kitties that endlessly brighten my days as well.
