You're welcome jane. I should clarify everything I have said above with the statement
that I don't think it would be a good idea to abandon ambitions or goals at this point
just because you haven't been treated optimally yet. Rather, don't elevate them to the
point that you expect them to have curative powers. Do what you need to do and
prioritise. Joy will come from within. The surest way to find it is to sucessfully
treat your depression. Take care of yourself.
