Help me understand....(not sewing related)

The other day I heard a commercial about antidepressants...which was normal occurrence in everyday living. Since we all are bombarded with commercials in our everyday life, but this commercial got my attention because it was talking about depression and sexual desire. It was basically a commercial that is focused on women who are on antidepressants but have low libido's. Which at some point aggravated me. Not because I heard this commercial a million times during the day...but what really messed with me is the fact that a condition like depression needs to some how be entangled with sexual desire. I don't know if you see where I am going with this.
And maybe I am too old school for my generation. But the last thing on my mind with severe depression is how active I am in my love life. I am trying to make it day to day, trying to function, live, breath which are things that becomes more like labor than natural. And I would be thinking about hanging from the chandeliers but ass naked? WTF!? Is going on with people!
As a person who is constantly on a battle field with depression I think the commercial isn't just insulting but ridicule what people like me go through in our down time.
But maybe I could be wrong...I could just be making something out of nothing. Or this condition has it's own audience and people who have overcome depression and need to feel that urge again. And maybe as a thirty something woman these things don't really affect me. But FOR GOD'S SAKE CAN WE FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING ON IN MY HEAD BEFORE WHAT GOES ON IN MY PANTIES! I know there is a guy behind this.
Oh yeah speaking of men, where are there clinics and pills and why aren't they doing research on their libido when taking anti-depressants!? What... it doesn't affect them either?
I am getting too old for this...I need my retirement check NOW!!!!

At it again part 2

So far I have made a muslin fit for the shirt... but I made a bo bo which isn't unusual in my case. I added 8 inches to the pattern without thinking. I forgot that I must measure myself first before I assume my size. So I had to take 4 inches off...which isn't now what's the problem. The front seems to be a little bigger than the does this mean I have to readjust the pattern. I got scared but it hit me that my front may be a little more curvier than the back. But it still bothers me so I will put it on again and see what needs to be altered.
