> i can't thank you enough for responding... sometimes i feel like i'm the only person here noone answers (just more self-pity, i know... :)

Keep in mind that sometimes people read, and care, but just don't know what to say. Especially if you don't want replies like "You're not alone"
or "Hang in there". But you're not alone.

> i'm not sure what i'll do... if the meds don't work, why bother? except that i'm always driven back to try more meds by my inability to live/function...

Why bother is because you do still value your life and want to get better - and that desire to get better is a wonderful thing, and it is what does keep
you going. Its a good sign, going back to try another or different meds.

> i can't be gentle about the food... it's my achilles heel... parts of me function as an athlete and it gets in the way... and being eating disordered (having had them ALL at one time or another my whole life), i totally define myself by my food

Here's a place talk-therapy probably can do you a great deal of good! If this is a recurring theme, then this is a good thing for you to work on. Try at least to eat healthy when you snack, instead of
chocolate. (Says the woman who just bought a bag of chocolates today! Haha!) I'm trying to also drink more - not alcohol, but rather water, juice, milk, things like that. Especially with a straw. It helps
with the oral cravings and fills my stomach. That might help you too! (And keeping hydrated can also help the mood!)

> sorry for rambling on... it just felt so good to have been heard.

You're always heard, even if its not acknowledged right away. Remember that most people who read these sorts of things tend to never post. That doesn't mean they're not listening.

>but i'm truly sorry that your understanding comes from being in pain yourself and hope you are able to overcome this garbage!!

But at the same time it is because we all have had these sorts of pain that we can come together and help each-other.
And so through our pain we can find something good and productive.
