Where Have I Been?

For those of you wondering I am alive. I have not been attacked by a guy in a hockey mask or bladed glove. No, I wasn't dragged into the woods and tortured by an author that received a bad review.

I've actually been living my own nightmare. I've had some issues with depression my whole life but the first half of this year has been particularly bad. After going through a very ugly bout of depression I finally looked for help from a psychiatrist and counselor. It turns out I'm bipolar. There are no words that can accurately describe what goes on in the mind of a bipolar, or seriously depressed, person. There are plenty of things we can say but none can give the perfect description to somebody that doesn't have the problem. I've gone through two medications trying to find something that works for me so far this year with no luck. I'm now on the third medication. Hopefully this one will do the trick.

The drawback for you is that during this last mood swinging period in my life I've done practically no reading. The list I put up in the previous post? Still haven't finished it. I do have a review coming for The Cage though. If you're a monster lover it's the book for you. I also have a movie I want to talk about soon too. A good movie for B movie fans.
