Hi Katy,

Like you antidepressants used to work for me up until about 4 years ago. I stupidly came off them, thinking I could always go back on them and they'd work their magic straight away. I really regret coming off them as if I hadn't I don't feel I would be in this position now.

i can't believe that I'm like this now, only 3 years ago I was fine, normal etc and then I suddenly found myself depressed again and for no apparent reason. On the surface I have everything going for me but it means nothing. If you have no will then there is no way.

I just can't understand why the don't work anymore and I wish someone would tell me.

I'm going to see another psychiatrist but I think they're all pretty much the same, after all they all have access to the same drugs and their approach is pretty standard (in the UK it is any way. I'd like someone to be a bit more radical and not leave me on a drug for so long. I've been on Lamictal since June and then I went to see my psychiatrist the other week and he then he tells me that 200mg istn't enough. Then why has he left me on it for 5 months without increasing the dose. I think they just get complacent after a while.

I'd have ECT but everyone looks appalled when I even menion it and then there are people who say it wrecked their life and then others who say it saved there life, it doestn't make any sense.

Can I ask what you're on now and if it's working?

Sorry to whine.
