I am seeing a new head shrinker for the first time on June 5th. This one is a "Neuropsychologist", and while I'm not entirely certain what the difference is, I've been told he is a nice fellow. I was referred to him by Miccah, and that's the only reason I'm going. Miccah is the only person whose judgment in people that I trust.
I've been anhedonic for going on 7 years now and no one has even tried to help, not ONE doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist. I tell them and they just don't want to deal with it, I guess. They're more focused on my so-called "Asperger's Sydrome" which I don't believe I actually have. Not everyone who is socially awkward has Asperger's. Seriously, I think it's just another flavour of the week diagnosis, like ADD was when I was a kid. Load 'em up with Ritalin, they'll be fine. They want to get you out of their hair as quickly as possible, at least that's how I see it. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and a personality trait is just that...a personality trait. What I mean is, I don't give a gnat's ass about the supposed Asperger's.
I'm much more worried about the fact that the dopamine receptors in my brain seem to have blown a fuse.
I've been sleeping a LOT. I have gone through phases before where I was sleeping almost 16 hours of a day. I'd get up and be dead tired again within a few hours. I am falling apart. I'm sorry to be so negative, but I really needed to vent. It's all been catching up with me as of late. So tired :(
Anyhoo. I am hoping to have a dog of my own soon. I'm looking for a German Shepherd puppy.
