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.

That's freaking B.S.!!! i can't believe how many times i've heard/read somebody say that his/her dr said that to them. What EFFING right does he/she have to say something like that???!!!!! Soihja;sdlkfh!!!!!!
If another pdoc ever says something like that to someone, you should just reply, "Well in that case i should just spit in your face and crap on your desk and slap you silly." What are they gonna do-- make you hate your life??
Sorry. i'm just so sick of hearing about this kind of s**t. No other field has had the lack of ethical responsibility, client (patient) concern & compassion, oversight, and AHHHH idontknowwhatelse ... as the field of psychiatry. From lobotomies and ineffectually developed ECT to overdosing of antipsychotics and the modern-day reliance on newer drugs, and everything else-- all the many many, more minor, yet-still-significant ineptitudes-- psychiatry, although immensely helpful, has caused an extraordinary amount of unrestituted damage and suffering. And more than anything else, in my opinion, it is because of arrogance and overconfidence (often coupled with extreme voids in empathy and compassion) that this occurs.
