A prescription for Wellbutrin

That's what I came home with from my doctor's appointment this morning. I know my doctor was right - I am depressed and have been for a while - but part of me feels like I shouldn't be. Though, of course, why shouldn't I?

The clincher was pretty much when she said that the best description she had ever heard for depression was the greek word for it (which I can't remember anymore) that translates as "absence of joy" and I burst into tears. I hate crying in front of people and she was so nice that it only made me cry more. Love that.

And I have to say what a relief it was for someone to take me seriously and not just say "it's all in your head".
