> I went out there and looked at Psycho-Social: "I wonder if I have this." "I wonder what I should do about that?" Well, I know what I got, and I wanted to post here so a bunch of pros who already know what they have could respond in their wisdom, the wisdom of experience. We can make it medication related: I am on 100mg of Zoloft daily, I have prescriptions for both Ativan and Valium (don't worry, I don't take them a the same time), Vicodin for pain, and Restoril 30mg. for sleep; sometimes I have to take 60 mg. and sometimes even 60 doesn't work. Question about medication? There's always a question about medication. I don't like to take medication. I drink teas and take hote baths and Melatonin instead of Restoril. I'd rather meditate and sit in the sun, go for walks, dig in the dirt than take Ativan; but I take it when I have to. Like now, like lately. How much Ativan is too much Ativan? When my metabolism is cranked to the max it is like a gorilla's. Only my body can tell me at a time like that. My psychiatrist, who has been with me for 9 years, says that I do not have an addictive personality, and he trusts me to medicate myself as necessary, not more, no less. I'd rather talk than sit around and get deprssed and take extra Ativan. Anybody else around here who's been on meds for 9 years with a "mental illness" who's having a rough time right now?

Dr. Bob, maybe we should scratch this posting. I did it to try and help myself feel better, but it's depressing me instead.

>Well, at least we have the option of clicking away to the psycho-social board. I guess that's one step in the right direction.
> > This web site suffers exactly the same ailment as the specialists that we consult for depression: meds and psychology are separated. This is rather frustrating to me because I tend to think that it all goes together. I have a definite inclination towards psychotherapy, but I recently started taking an AD, and I don't quite see how I can talk about one approach without talking about the other...
