Hi Med,

I wouldn't worry about diagnosis too much, psych diagnoses are vague to say the least. I think you need to concentrate on what makes *you* feel better. Abilify made you feel better at a low dose. Finding the mimimum effective dose of Abilify might be a good place to start.

>Maybe the problem is I'm not passive enough. Sometimes I think if I went to a shrink and cried, or begged, or did something to look helpless and afraid, we'd get along. But I don't. I know a good bit about meds. I'm a total and complete smart *ss. I'm cynical. I'm open with my own opinions. Maybe...maybe I'm just not cut out to be a "good patient"? I'm not trying to sound superior just...maybe docs like it when you fall on their mercy or something. Maybe they dont want to do deal with some smart *ss, cynical, opinionated, mood-disordered, incredibly anxious gay guy. Maybe I "am not motivated to change" ? Maybe I'm just not willing to change into what shrinks want me to be? I dont know what to do.

I think you need to find a pdoc who doesn't have a big ego ;-)

Kind regards
