Strictly practical... Careful with that. Should 'the man' take notice, your car will be impounded and you'll have to make a court appearance. (And yes, I'm speaking from experience.)

Otherwise, yes, absolutely. I've often thought that a great deal of the crisis that surrounds me is directly resultant of me being careless or just not paying attention. The big thing for me has been figuring out why I feel the need to keep myself in a state of permanent imbalance. I'm standing in my own way, and it's killing me.

ugh. yeah. court appearance doesn't sound like fun.
I spent a lot of time with my therapist wrestling with trying to understand why my negligence could so impact my self esteem. I guess deep down I do actually care about this stuff. permanent imbalance--that I understand. But I wonder if it really is your fault. I'm not a drug pusher, but I learned some interesting stuff the year I was actually being treated. 1. If you have more than three episodes of major depression, untreated, the likelyhood that it will reoccur is some percentile in the 90s. 2. If you're not depressed, anti-depressants won't affect your mood, so if you take them and it does, then you're depressed. 3. The longer depression goes untreated, the worse the reoccurance will be.
Not trying to preach, just thought those were good things to share. I'm not totally sold on therapy, at least I think it's hard to find a good match, but Celexa has helped me feel less imbalanced.
