Spriggy, you are so right. Luckily I have have had some true depression free times in the past few years, so it is possible for me to remember what "normal" feels like. Life is supposed to be enjoyable most of the time. Right now for me something is off, so I am trying to figure out how to get back to normal. I am scared to change/adjust meds but I know that it is what I need to do. Exercise, less stress at work, eating better, etc - those things will all help, but if I don't get out of bed because I am not on the right meds, well, then I can't see through the fog to help myself.

Still, very scared. What if it doesn't work? What if I have nasty side effects? Why ME???? Waaaaaah!

In this state I tend to argue with myself that this is true, but it is fact, that in the past 10+ years, when I have adjusted my meds, most of the time life has gotten better. Every single time I try to taper down or go off altogether, bad, bad stuff. And the biggest sign I need the meds is that I think I don't.

Anyway, that is just me - thanks for letting me "remember" what I need to do -
