Sunday blues

I’m not having a good day today. Anxiety going through the roof and my concentration is almost nonexistent. I’m thinking about returning to the antidepressants more and more but I don’t like how they dull my moods and almost make everything “flat.” I don’t know how else to explain it. So the choice is, rollercoaster of moods for everyone around me to fall foul of or flat and withdrawn with bouts of levity. There has got to be a better way.
