I know you are right Tamara. But I only deserve 500 calories a day.

I'm sure it would take months and months to see someone at the Royal Ottawa Hospital and I don't think I will be around by then.

I know you probably don't particularly want to see another doctor, but have you ever considered making the trip to Ottawa to see someone at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. Our local news had a week-long segment on depression recently, and a Dr. Blier was interviewed. He joined the ROH last year as Endowed Chair in Mood Disorders Research (here's a quote from the pr announcing his appointment: "Dr. Blier, world-renowned clinical scientist in depression, moved from the United States to take the coveted Chair position and to lead an innovative clinical, research and teaching program in the field of depression at the Royal Ottawa Hospital and the research institute. He is well recognized for groundbreaking advances in the treatment of depression, particularly in getting patients to feel better much more quickly than conventional approaches.").
> And, at the risk of pissing you off, I will say this: until you get your ED under control and start eating more than 500 calories a day, you will continue to have problems. Neither the body nor the mind can function optimally in a state of near starvation. If you can not bring yourself to eat solid foods, at least try some homemade protein shakes (using whey protein powder, fresh fruit, almonds, yogurt) and even baby food. (Smack, slap, pow - I have given myself a slap on your behalf :-) )
> Try to take care of yourself Maxime. And, please don't give up hope yet. Although you may not believe it now, you still have much to offer and to contribute.
