Sorting my shit out

So the results came back from the doctor. Note accompanying results from doctor:

"Everything normal, however depression can make eczema worse, I think you should come see me about that."

Problem is, I'm not depressed. And I don't think I have eczema either.

So I'm willing to give this a go and see if it helps. Meanwhile I've reduced the stress in my life by knocking the Honours on the head, and I'm going to try this for a month and see what happens. I feel better already, but I want a record of consistently feeling better before I'm convinced it's working and not just the novelty of my newfound freedom.

But there's still the pain in my back, and I'd like to get to the bottom of it, which means going to the doctor.

I think I need to find another doctor, tbh. This one seems determined to tell me I'm depressed without looking further into what might be causing it. Bollocks to that.

* For those who are thinking 'death panels!' think again. Our government would like to turn our health system into a US-like user pays model, and part of what that means is that state funding is not covering as much as it used to, and so the bar for who gets to see a specialist has been raised unless you have insurance and can afford to go private. Fuck that noise.
