Today, by mutual assessment that I was in a good and happy place, I brought the round of counseling to a close. My grief has been processed, my stress has been largely reduced, my creative energy is up. In short, I'm better. ^.^
Depression is never completely defeated of course, and there's no telling when I might go into another round. If that happens, I can always go back. But for right now, my mental health is good, and I'm a happy Gneech.
I'll take it!
