> Dear Katherine,
> I can speak from experience, having been in grad school for the last 4 years (Ph.D. program) and boy has it been hellish at times! The last week or so I've been feeling a bit better; I am on 4 different meds; zyprexa,celexa, SAMe, and Naltrexone. Something has got to work eventually!Knowing what I know now I don't think I would have taken the step to go back to school; but then again, I have good days when I think I made the right decision. Anyway, I hope you get as much support as possible and make the decision that works best for you, whether that means to put it off or to go for it. Talking about your decision with a good therapist may help. Good Luck! Peter

Hi Mila, Ruth and Peter,

Thank you for all of the support and advice. (I had a good cry). I am seeing a very good psychiatrist right now. The serzone I started two days ago made me feel really awful and I've stopped taking it. I think I'm going to try without and see how it goes. As for law school, I can't defer it. Only my closest friends know about my problem, my family has no idea and they are expecting me to go to law school. I'm going away this summer on vacation and I'm hoping that it will give me a new perspective on things and be a good refresher before law school. If I can make it through without meds I'm going to try. I've decided to try really hard on changing my "behavior". Like George on Seinfeld, I'm going to do the opposite of what I would normally do and hope for good results.
