I took and online test today for anxiety, panic disorders and depression. Do you know the damn thing had the nerve to tell me that I was LYING or that I didn’t take the test seriously!!! What’s up with THAT?!?!? That’s like your therapist telling you, “I know you’re feeling X. Why don’t you just admit it?” I was so shocked by that. What’s up with this built-in expectation that we be stressed and depressed? I am neither. Thank you very much. I was taking the test because someone I love is experiencing those symptoms and I wanted to understand for myself what they are, but that disturbed me. I don’t want anyone caring for someone I love who is going to insist s/he isn’t well once s/he is. That pisses me off.
But…can you guess why I’m not stressed and depressed? No? Well, I’ll tell you. I’m getting divorced Friday!!!!!! Whooo Effing Hoooo!
