My psychiatrist's office is on the eighth floor of the Wells Fargo building in downtown Colorado Springs. This was my view out of his window today.
In addition to a new prescription that I'm scared to take, Dr. McClure gave me a lot to think about. All day I've been pondering a comment a friend made recently: "Hope is the opposite of despair. Despair is crippling and not functional. Hope is understanding that whatever you are wanting could really happen."
Tonight I choose to hope.
