> hi again all...i just keep comin back...thanks, Dr. Bob, for providing this forum.
> today I went to the dr..first visit since going off the paxil...I cried during the visit, and we talked about the possibility of continuing an SSRI therapy...she prescribed celexa and trazadone for sleep disturbance (which Ive had in one way or another, for over a year)
> I have not yet decided to begin the celexa, but reading the posts is issus is this, I guess, im right back to wondering why, given my education and professional work in the MH field, i need these drugs to feel ok. I want to badly to be normal, to have normalcy as I perceive others do..I want to ride my own psyche and master this damn pain.
> anyway, somehow, if I begin celexa, I feel like a failure...:( feedback anyone?
> luv,

> p.s. the dizzyness is subsiding- now I am crying one minute and laughing uncontrollably the next..i look crazy...LOL

>>jennyann, Unfortunately, being educated or a professional in mental health is not a safeguard
against mental illness.Knowing WHY will not help either.
The runner and author, Jim Fixx, ignored family history and a doctors suggestion to have a stress test(the treadmill thing). He was in great shape, ran a zillion miles a year; he was an expert. He died running-very young. Preachers
lose faith. Therapist get depressed. Denial
can hurt people.
Take it a step at a time. Trying to FIGURE OUT
why we get depressed while we are depressed can be very depressing...;-)
P.S. While perceiving others to be NORMAL, you may be comparing your "insides" with their "outsides". Everybody has a game face and people in social situations would like others to believe they have got it together. NOBODY HAS IT ALL TOGETHER!!
