“How do you feel?”

Not any better.”

“How about sleep?”

“Oh, I sleep like a log.  I used to finally get to sleep after hours, then I’d wake up about 3 AM and couldn’t get back to sleep until it was time to get up.”

“How do you feel when you get up in the morning?”

“You know, I used to have a terrible time getting going in the morning.  I would get up more tired than I went to bed.  Now I jump out of bed and feel rested.”

“And your energy?”

” I’ve been getting so much done!  Before, I couldn’t muster up enough ambition to start or finish anything.”

“How is your appetite?”

“Great!  I really look forward to the next meal and think about what I’m going to have.  I used to eat, but I couldn’t care if it was steak or Jello or sawdust.”

“What about your relationships with other people?”

“I’ve been doing things with friends and family again.  For a long time I avoided people and was uncomfortable being even with my best friends.”

“How are you feeling?”

Not any better.”
