My understanding that paradox can come and go; correct?
Would you pls explain/dispute the following re: your following statements?
>In my case, physical I will not ever believe that GAD can exist in a person without depression. It took me a while to face the depression as it's own entity, but looking back and adding it all up leads me to insist that I would not have gotten to the levels of depression I have seen without the GAD causing so much difficulty. Now add in some physical injuries (either before or after GAD/dep. onset) and the chronic pain becomes a major obstacle to everyday life as you very well know.<
Have you ever had 'a wonderful thing' occur in your life, alongside successful GAD treatment, and felt lifting of your depression? I have experienced the aforementioned. Does that mean I do not have GAD? I'd think that would disprove that depression always co-exists alongside GAD.
>I have received 0 rx pain pills to this point (mid 20's now) but I have had far too many psychiatric drugs thrown my way to start counting as I write this. Is it just me or is something wrong with that picture?<
Are you saying docs don't validate physical pain because you are on psych meds, or (You can yell @ me if wrong!:) are you invalidating your pain for the same reason?
I'm slow on the uptake - overwhelmed right now'! Just called re: counseling, heard back; short staffed, so no! Ohhh, I'm feeling so tiny!! Need to talk very badly.
