> hey fachad , in my wonderings and workings on the internet to understand this i have come across the BTLC many times...
Glad you've seen the BLTC sites. They really do have a lot of info, and I was excited just to see that someone else shared the philosophical perspective that happiness could and should be engineered.

my sympathetic system is over active...
Have you ever considered a trying a beta blocker? These meds specifically target adrenergic sympathetic over activity.
I actually take a tiny dose of Toprol to squelch my sympathetic nervous system because it gets too fired up by the amount of dextroamphetamine required to give me enough dopamine to function.
Try doing some searches and find a bit out about beta blockers. They are quite remarkable and are somewhat underrated in psychiatry, IMHO.
If your problem really is due to too much NE, or excessive sensitivity to NE, or sympathetic over activity, then beta blockers would be the ideal meds for you.
