Kind of a serious question

How do you know if you're having a normal reaction to something, or if maybe you need to see someone? I know that no one can gauge that for me, I just mean in general. I feel like a lack the capability to tell.

I have been diagnosed with severe depression and bipolar (mixed). About 6 months ago, my doctors weaned me off all my medicines and I've been doing really well. But I live in fear that one day I won't be...and so I watch myself constantly. Today was a sucky day. A really, really bad day. And I cried a little. That scared me, and I started thinking 'what if this is the start of your downward spiral'? I tell myself that everyone has bad days, and everyone is allowed to cry and that it's okay. It doesn't mean anything. I had a bad day, I cried, it's over.

So when will I stop being so scared? When will I relax? It's been 6 months and I've been fine.

A not-so-serious, less depressing question:
Have you ever been to the Tilted Kilt? It's like an Irish pub/Hooters. We went last night because my friend Jay came home from Afghanistan. It was not a good experience. I wanted to leave a comment card, but they didn't have any. I did talk to a manager, though. Yes, I was THAT person. But it was really terrible service.
