No episode of hysteria for a month. The psychiatrist did call me back Monday and left an incomprensible ten second message. It was background noise and the end of a conversation he had with someone else. I called back, didn't reach him, and didn't leave a message.
Gary was as trying as he could be yesterday, yelling at the television, yelling at me, and I stayed calm.
Clearly the recent diagnosis and my intention to do something about it has whipped my emotional stability right into line.
