Hi Mike:
I hope you don't mind my calling you Mike. In the real world that's what I am. I prefer it myself.

Not to worry, it's not likely that I have any problems of the type you refer to. My use of that term is predicated on the fact that I am self sufficient in most areas where I need to be in order to conduct my life in a satisfactory manner. I'm pretty certain that it is more of an adaption to the SA/SP that anything. From my own personal logic system it follows that if I want to get my life together, I'd better learn how to do it and not rely on anyone else to do it for me. I am not able to ask anyone for anything for myself (I can deal effectivley for someone else though.). If I want it, I'd better get it together myself. Now that I know how to accomplish those things I need to, I have no need to ask anyone for anything: "pathological independance"! The greatest problem is that I will not allow anyone to do anything for me now that I can do it myself: pathological independence! There are a few exceptions to that. There are a few friends (very few,1 or 2) that I will allow to do things for me. Not because I want them to, but as a gift to them, even though it makes me uncomfortable. They derive satisfaction from it. That's the true test of whether they have reached my inner circle or not.

As far as the benefit I derived from taking Paxil. I'm not really sure if I can say there have been any.Ican see why, for many people, it could be a very bad experience. I wouldn't recommend for anyone to do it as I did, without a guide to assist you through the more difficult aspects. I researched it. I knew what to expect and knew I could deal with it. I was not wrong in my assessment. Other than the change that instigated my original post here, I can see no other benefit that I have obtained from it other than an understanding of what it can potentially do. From it's actions on me, I believe it could be effective in dealing with SA/SP if it was coupled with an effective method of therapy. The problem in my mind is that there are very few effective therapy methods and all of them are still suspect as far as I'm concerned. My trial of it was more out of curiosity than need.

Mike and Clayton:
Part of the reason I posted this originally in the other forum is that I have no interest in whether the pink pill is better than the blue one or if two greens are even better. I realize that these things are of major import in your lives right now. I do not mean for this to be critical of anyone here in any way. I am not here because I am looking for a medication. I'm beginning to think that there's not much hope of finding an answer to my question here, maybe it's not available anywhere. I will continue to monitor this thread for input on my question, But, I have no interest in medications.
Thanks all.
