I met with a psychiatrist on Wednesday morning, and about an hour later I had a bottle of anti-depressants in my hand. I've been taking them daily since Wednesday, and I feel so much better already.
Don't worry, I don't think they're miracle pills. I sincerely doubt that the pills themselves have had much effect over just four days. What's making me feel better is the knowledge that I've done something to make things better - that I've taken a very real step towards becoming less unhappy all the time. Few things can lift the spirits like knowing the future won't be quite as dark as the present; that very knowledge makes the present less dark.

And while we're on the subject of photos, go check out my photo blog. Yes, it still exists, and yes, it's been updated recently. I have grandiose hopes of updating more in the future. Note that these are hopes, not plans. Just sayin'.
