I admire you Mason. To openly talk about a medical condition that affects millions is not an easy step. I have been on meds for depression, and know how hard it is to overcome the illness itself, yet alone deal with the medication.
Know that you are cared for, loved, and admired. Even if I do not always agree with your opinions, I will defend your right to say and believe them.
Doing what you are doing takes courage. You have overcome so much in your life, only a little do I know about, but I do know you have the character to overcome this.
There is noting wrong with getting help for an illness. It is admirable to do it to say the least. Know that if you ever need support, a great plate of bbq- (*kansas city is the best in that you know) swing your rig this way.
If you need a shoulder.. or an ear.. you always have one available.
Take care, hang in there and know you have a polar bear that cares. (raises up on hind legs and growls for the funof it)
Take care Mason and keep in touch.. it may be hard at times, but just a note to let us know you are ok at the time.
Big Bear Hug..
