> 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.

Aaaahhhhgggrrr. My pdoc said the same thing to me. She was not exactly correct. I can't say I feel "normal", but the degree of depression I feel now is so far diminished that I'm at least within shouting distance of normal. I don't know if I'm going to continue to get better, or whether this is the high point of my life, or what, but if your doctor can predict the future, s/he ought to be playing the stock market.

What did it for me was augmentation with Cytomel (T3 thyroid hormone). I spent months talking my pdoc into trying it, because I'm not clinically hypothyroid. I know many other people have tried it without success, but my point is that sometimes you have to experiment with less-proven remedies.
