Recently, I thought my general dis-ease in my overall mental health was attributable to the ongoing political melodrama being acted out in DC and elsewhere, culminating in the recent protests/riots.

Now I believe the problems and feelings I am experiencing are really about the efficacy of my antidepressant medication. So I am increasing my dosage of Prozac©from 20mg daily to 40mg. Earlier, my psychiatrist has been OK with my adjusting the dosage level on my own. After a few weeks, I will see how I feel. I have been taking this drug almost continuously for 26 years. It could be time to move on.

We shall see.
