> Ah, yes, I see. "Valuable input" is one that agrees with your take on things. Also see that you are too full of your own self-image of correctness to accept an apology. That's OK, I support you anyway because I believe that your heart (and perhaps even your science) is in the right place. I tried to make a point. I'm sure that I went about it in a way that didn't communicate what I wanted to say such that it could be understood by you and refuted in a way that was at least educative to me, if not one that acheived consensus. I tried to explain that but was ignored by you. I guess that you are just too angry about this issue. I just wanted to say that I suffer too because the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness isn't as precise as I know it will be one day. Regardless of what you think of me, I do know your pain. Maybe one day we can be on the same page. I hope for that day. Best Regards.
I think we are getting our signals crossed. I did reply yesterday and thanked you for your apology, but I must of forgot to submit my post and anyway, I said I had to leave babble to go to a baseball game. So please don't assume that if I don't respond righ away, I am being "full of myself". Please give me a little more respect. I don't ever want to come across like that. I have said in prior post, that I agree there are many people out there that are that are treatment resistant, which I assume you are from you above post in your above post. I TRUELY sympathize with you and all the others who are going through this.
