So, you've been dysthymic for 29 years and on meds sporadically for less than one.

I don't mean to slam you at all, HeidiK, so please don't take it that way. Just take a look at the two periods.

I know that once you finally get up the gumption to take that step after so many years, you want things to work right away. If you're as lucky as my brother, they do. If you're as lucky as me, it'll take a couple of years.

Did you get along well with your pdoc? You may want to look at some threads on picking a psychiatrist and consider the same issues yourself. If he was helping you, what are you waiting for? You know better now about sticking with your meds, so make an appointment and just get it over with. Besides being stuck in the same old hole you've been in for 29 years, feeling guilty about being noncompliant with your meds is just going to dig the hole deeper instead of help you out.

You had the strength and the courage to do it once. It sounds like you have a supportive husband as well. Draw on those resources and just do it.
