> I am 38 and have spent most of my adult life sufferring from depression. I got to the point when I thought it was untreatable and I would succomb to a suicide attempt that didn't fail. After one such failed attempt I found a pdoc who worked with me on a weekly/monthly basis to find the right meds.

> If it weren't for sites like Dr. Bob's I don't know if I would have found the right combination for me. After too many years of failure I was ready to give up (and tried) but now I have been able to come around thanks to the medicine. I think there is hope because I made it through. Others can do the same, it's just a matter of time and energy.

Thanks for replying. Sounds like you`ve had a rough time, too. I don`t know about you but I feel like I`ve missed out on a really important period of my life (i.e. my mid to late 20s, and early 30s - so far, I`m 34 now). But, I`m pleased to hear that things are better for you now.

I think that a good psychiatrist (one that will work WITH you and not autocratically) is absolutely essential. I don`t know where you live, but in this country (UK) good psychiatrists are few and far between. I really am very lucky to have such a good one.

Dr Bob`s site was a real `find` for me too. I don`t think that I`ll go far wrong as long as I`m still in regular contact.

Thanks a lot,

Anna.
