Every so often life blesses you with a pithy comeback, perfectly timed. I enjoy those moments.

Last week I had to make a return trip to the psychiatrist. Every now and then the docs like to re-evaluate my medication to keep me from going completely crazy. Since it was my first visit with this particular MD, I had to fill out the anxiety/depression questionnaire. (more…)
