Valium

Sometimes it is hard for me to tell if I'm depressed because I'm thinking about things that upset me, or if I'm thinking about things that upset me because I'm feeling depressed. I don't want to abuse my Valium prescription. So I try to only take a pill if the crying goes on for a couple of hours. And I've set a personal limit of ~2 pills a month.

Generally I think I can tell the difference between helpful crying and non-helpful crying. There have been plenty of times I have cried in therapy and felt that it was therapeutic and not a bad thing. Talking about things that made me sad in the past makes me feel sad.

Anyway, I was crying and thinking very sad thought this evening so I took a Valium.

Don't be afraid to call me if you need to talk. I can usually get you to giggle and it seems to have helped in the past. I'm glad you're working on understanding yourself. I'm in a much better head space now and I would be happy to help.
