I think I've got my own answer - journaling in the open is great therapy in itself - but thread's still open to comment.

One indicator is often my sleep. Though this has been on my mind and pissing me off all week, I'm sleeping normally.

In short, it's time for me to move on to someone who is NOT an intern. $liding $cale jacks up a bit, but I need someone with more than a year's experience who won't mix up my issues with his.
