Thanks. Unfortunately it has been the case all along. Sigh.

I finally got my pdoc to admit to something today. That I will never feel "normal". In other words, I am one of those people that will have to live with depression to some degree for the rest of my life. Not I that I wanted to hear that, or that he was giving up on me, but he was being honest. And I know many of you will say that there is stuff coming out all the time etc. BUt I have been battling this forever.


> Yeah, Parnate can do this pretty badly sometimes, for some reason. i'm not sure why. i think it might be partly due to acute alpha-1 adrenergic agonism, or maybe a result of some adaptation of dopamine receptors after sustained stimulation. i really don't know though. i've been quite curious about this myself. i really don't believe it's from any serotonin agonism, however (one of the few times i remember finding myself disagree with djmmm).
