Cam: I have worked extensively on myself in therapy regular and cognitive. I actually consider myself cured--in the sense that the rabbit holes I used to go down have been cleaned out and I no longer go there. Still, 5 years later and maybe 15 meds later, I struggle with the physical symptoms of anxiety--shortness of breath, tightness in chest--and depression--energy, mood and cognitive function impairment. I read med text books (Stahl's--but hey I'm not in your league), research my condition on the web extensively and am proactive with my pdoc. I chart my reactions to drugs. I use Omega 3, a SAD light, exercise, treat myself well and still... My point is for some of us, it isn't a lack of effort, it's that "science" hasn't caught up with our condition and we are still living in the middle ages, sticking a probe in and charting the patient's reaction. I think we are a long way off from having a real understanding of what these various illnesses are, what causes them, and what the mechanisms of healing might be. But you do the best you can with the crude tools available to you :-)
