GBG - Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That is pretty much exactly what I was trying to say. I was really surprized at the response I had received. I hadn't read the thread that dealt with this topic previously and did not realize how much of sore point it had been. In my clinical practice, I am constantly telling people that they have to work with the drugs to achieve some semblance of normality and am being told that if the doc would prescribe the right drug, they would be better. It doesn't work that way, especially in a reactive depression. I do realize, that with chronic depressions (like mine) that meds are the thing that "keep" me normal, but if I didn't help the meds along, I would still be in bed.

I really appreciate the post, and thanks again for bailing me out. I really don't always have the ability to put what is in my head on paper, but I am working on it. I think the sign of true professional is to be able to take the science and put it into everyday language. I envy you. Just when I think I am getting a grasp on what mental illness means and how it affects people in a common way, something like this rears it's ugly head, totally baffling me with the response to my statements. I guess that I have to open my other half of my brain a little more. Honestly, I am trying (some will say, "very trying").

Sincerely - Cam
