thanks for your answer about mood disorder. I did do a quick search and posted a question about some of the natural ritalin products. My oblique sense of humor landed like a rock again. I'm seldom down on myself. that was humor. Sometimes when it comes from me on paper it isnt recognizable if you take it at face value with no inflection or irreverent tone. i believe my ability to look at things and see them as absurdly humorous is my saving grace that get me thru each day. You know what they say. You can either laugh or cry. I usually laugh.
