This early afternoon, I’m feeling a little down. I’m not feeling seriously depressed, but just generally blah.
I often feel that my depressed mood is a direct result of having MS. To me, my depression seems incredibly biologically-based. This is very frustrating, since MS, of course, is a long-term condition.
I know that I am also experiencing the lingering effects of having received the results of my most recent MRI/MRA scans. My mood has definitely been adversely impacted by knowing that I have developed extensive MS lesioning at this point, nearly twenty-six years after my initial diagnosis.
Later today, I have a work-related meeting to attend. I’ll be meeting with CHE Senior Psychological Services Buffalo-area clinicians.
Since working as a contracted clinical psychologist is very isolating, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to network with other clinicians. I still haven’t found out more definitive information about the assisted living facility where I recently had a meeting.
