I think he found the appointment helpful. He has another, but it's not till the 25th. They recommended that he look into starting up martial arts again, but keep in mind that no matter how much he enjoys it, he's going to really have to push himself to go. I brought a few pamphlets home to review the "how to help someone with depression stuff". I've never felt those pamphlets were helpful before, but they actually had some excellent points in them!
Tomorrow is his b.day and he's really not into them. I want to make sure he has a good day and feels loved so I'm trying to think of ways to keep him/us busy all day. I'm going to make him cake in a mug & bacon in the AM (maybe eggs if he wants them), give him a silly card & last present (shirt from shirt.woot.com that I think will suit him, the other was a BACON STRIPS shirt from Epic Mealtime). Maybe we'll go for a matinee showing of 21 Jump Street? Unfortunately I also have to make sure he spends some time on his senior thesis research paper on animal creativity =\
