This adjusting my medication has been questionable. I feel alittle bit better. But I am still depressed and still I am not motivated. Still don't look for a job. Seems to overwheming. So I don't know what to do. My therapist thinks I am doing better. But I don't.
Hi not right yet

my pdoc quite frequently thinks that i am better than i actually am. i think this is partly due to the fact that i'm so used to putting on the happy act that sometimes i do it with him too (subconsciously). then i usually call with a bit of a meltdown a few days later! hope you have been able to tak to your therapist or psychiatrist and that they have tweaked your meds. let us know how you are doing.

How can you read these boards if you are blind?

I use a screen reader called Window-Eyes which converts information that appears on the screen into synthetic speech. It also sends the same information to a Braille display where it is read by me. I'm able to navigate to different parts of the screen by issuing keyboard commands to the screen reader. I'm quite familiar with computers and have been using them since 1984. My first computer was an Apple IIe.
