I feel pretty good today, better than yesterday for sure. For whatever reason when I awoke yesterday morning I felt angry again. It was sort of an underlying anger, not a “punch the wall” anger, but a strong enough emotion that it was noticable that early in my day. It’s hard to say why I felt that way, although I had forgotten to take my meds the night before but I wouldn’t think one day would set me back the way it did. I promptly took my pill after I got up.
Underlying anger was one of the symptoms that led me to look for help. At that time, about early Apr.2011, I went to my Doctor concerned over certain aspects of my life, sleep habits, mood, etc., he concurred with my suggestion of counseling, and he also sent me for some tests. From there to here is a bit of a jump but essentially I was diagnosed with a mild depression, treatable with medication. Mirtazapine was the drug of choice, 30mg the dosage.
So, back to today, I felt ‘normal” again this morning, a much improved state of mind. With what happened yesterday morning and a general feeling my improvement has stopped I wonder if an increase in dosage is warranted. I have a Dr. appointment next week and I can discuss with him.
