Hi Oona,
I'm still chuckling about your mother herding you around the living room 'dorm'. Boy, it sounds like you got a double-whammy with your mom and dad. My dad was definitely gonzo. His whole side of the family was violently colorful crazy Polocks. One of them died in an asylum, my grandmother had her kids taken away for trying to stab my grandfather to death, my father was alternately a rage-aholic or suicidally depressed. Heck, if it weren't for the genetics, I'd still be shit out of luck with my upbringing.

OK, I understand about the WB. I had the SAME complaint when I was on Zoloft. I was taking it for 6 years at 200 to 250 mg and I was like 'oh, whatever'. Couldn't feel anything, no zest for life. Not only that, but depression was breaking through anyway. So my doctor thought that the norepinephrine would help with the zip. I honestly can't remember what the outcome was, except I don't think I liked it. But you know, I don't even remember all that well. Duh!

If you have acupuncture coverage, that's great! I don't know of many HMOs that are that liberated. I found it very helpful for a good system tonic and balancer, but alas, didn't seem to be enough to replace the ADs. Sometimes I think that after so many years on these meds I'm lucky if I have two of my own neuro-receptor sites left to rub together. I truly wish we all had a detox place to go to cause I don't know how to do it without the meds anymore.
