It's been awhile...need some help

Posted by Mr. Scott on December 16, 2001, at 21:56:06

Hello friends and fellow sufferers,

I am chronically depressed (the lethargic, rejection sensitive type), easily overstressed, and always anxious and obsessing. Every time I take an (ssri/Effexor)antidepressant I notice an immediate improvement in the rejection sensitvity, and the feeling of total helplessness, as well as the obsessing. At the same time I tend to get angry more easily, I feel agitated, I act "goofy" or giddy and immature even. Something definately happens along the lines or irritability and agitation that isn't right. At the same time that I feel physically & mentally agitated, my brain is eaasily dulled by ssri's (not so much Effexor)My face also swells which really bothers me.

My quality of life is truly depleted and it seems I can do nothing about it. I am watching the world and my life go by, and it is so saddenning.

I have had many many diagnoses including BPII by one supposed expert in the field, and an odd diagnosis by a maverick psychiatrist who believes that my response to ssri's is indicative of some kind of neurological/seizure disorder. This latter doctor is unconvinced of any bipolar stuff probably because my sleep in consistent (all the time).

I feel I'm out of answers, and the motivation to keep going on.

Does anything I said above make anyone think of anything? I'll try anything and entertain any hypothesis at this point.
