Very interesting article on Parkinson's Personality. My father just passed away from it and had the classic "parkinson's" personality...orderly, risk averse, but loved coffee, a good party and people. He also was very confident and had no anxiety that was evident. He had no depression that I know of and was extremely resilient to stress, the opposite of my personality, although in between deprssions, I had the same traits so perhaps I do have a dopamine issue more than a serotonin one. All of the SSRI's worked by deadening my emotions over the long term.
I'll be starting Emsam tomorrow so my dopamine system should be ready to start working.
