  1. Annoyed I am going to be waking up today in Trump's America ... and there is no way to go back asleep and stay asleep for the next four years.

  2. I wouldn't sweat it. (Yeah I know easier said...) Re-evaluations are a routine event. It's not advertised but the Social Security Administration sees mood disorders such as bipolar I as being lifetime disorders. Remission is possible of course, but one is always at risk of return of symptoms. (Bad news is good news...) As long as you check in periodically with a mental health professional and maintain that all important paper trail you should be good to go. Carry on,

  5. A few days after Donald J. Trump was elected president, I started getting anxious phone calls from some of my patients. They were not just worried about the direction President-elect Trump might take the nation, but about how they were going to fare, given their longstanding and serious mental illnesses. “Will I still have insurance and have my medications covered?” one depressed patient asked me. As a psychiatrist, I wish that I could be more reassuring to my patients during a highly stressful political transition, but in truth, they have reason to worry.

      I always think someone will be out there, but maybe it just removes that hope.
