Got ten hours of sleep last night.  I feel a lot more in control today.  This is undoubtedly due to controlling my environment so I have less to worry about today (probably also why I was able to sleep so much).

The monster is still loose and rummaging around up there, but I’m moving it closer and closer to the corner.

You guys are seriously the best.  I write about my mental illness as a means of saying that it’s a normal part of life for some people.  To those who think depression is always an excuse for not being tough, I want to convey what it’s really like.  It’s like coming out as an atheist: it’s hard to do, but it aim is to change the world positively for the people who come after you.

You guys have made it much, much easier.  All of you willing to put up money if I had to go to the hospital…I have no words.  Thank you.
