> Had a visit with a new doc today - complete jerk - when I told him I was seriously depressed he told me that I wasn't -that- seriously depressed because I was able to make jokes about my condition (how the hell else do you cope? The day I can no longer laugh at the absurdity of it all will be the day I have completely given up). I am now trying not to think too much about the session or I will burst some type of blood vessel. I have another meeting with him on Thursday to "straighten" some things out (I have visions of straightening things out with a large golf club, ok, not really, but it is fun to visualize).

I hope you are now taking Serzone. It was the last ssri I had to try that finally worked and didn't cause the weight gain that I experienced with Prozac and Zoloft. As long as I take it before I go to bed, I seem to feel really good. I take it in combination with Klonopin for anxiety. The anxiety is basically gone. However, it did take a while to kick in--3-5 weeks. If I skip a dose, though I feel really sick the next time I take it, so stay on the regimen. And Good Luck.
