Ive always try to explain to non depressed people how it feels.I explain if you had surgery and your arm hurt,u can take a pain killer and probuably go on and be ok.

But what do you do when your own mind turns aganist you!!! Reading your posts reminds me of this,and its absoluty terrifying.I read your post and although it doesent help but there are people at least understand and go through it too.

With all the celebs that are listed as depressed,its a shame we dont have a spokes person out there,this disease will never get better as long as things stay the same.We need to get it out and talked about,so the meds can chance and we dont continue to get the same meds just tweaked usualy for patent reasons.The best i seen was the pbs special where they spoke of vns,along with a person immediatly treated succesfuly with a small dose of ketamine.

One executive in the show said these people come to us in dying need,if a person with a flamed appendix came in we treat their pain immediatly.Yet depressed people are given a med,told well try that for 6 weeks and see what happens.

NO he said,we need tohelp them immediatly,treat them as we would a patient with any disease.

I hope everyone seen this special,let me know i can direct you to clips of it as well as the entire special.

To the poster my heart goes out,i live by twisting meds daily,im exhausted but like you im terrified of living with my mind aganist me.
