Thanks for the encouragement. I don't know whether to continue on the serzone or try the lithium. Part of me believes it is time to try the lithium because it is a different approach altogether and I have been through a number of antidepressants and they all eventually have major limitations, such as pooping out, etc. I have gained a LOT of weight already, because I eat when I am depressed and have been extraordinarily sedentary. And, my skin is already in rough shape from rosacea acne. So, obviously I am not keen on the possibility of lithium related effects of weight gain and acne. Also, the effexor makes me have bladder problems and I worry that the lithium will add to this because you have to drink a lot and, so I hear, need to urinate a lot.

I just read an article that talks about how depression worsens if not treated early. I think things are worse for me because all these years on antidepressants, the symptoms have only been partially ameliorated.
