Hey Bitkit,

I'm surprised your docs won't address the ed. Is there any medical protocol for treating it? Maybe they think it's strictly a therapy issue? That must be quite dismaying to have the ed surfacing again. (I was bulimic for a number of years from teens to early twenties--I was untreated back then. was distressing and confusing--isolating as well.)

Bookmarked the link you posted for when I have more time.

hang in there and courage--sounds like you have much insight into your situation,


> HI Candace,
> I think you're really on to something. My anger has a lot of legitimate causes. Since negative feelings usually just morph into self-hatred or general dread, I was having a hard time understanding this feeling. I mean to say, I've occasionally expressed outrage to a person but maybe a handful of times in my whole life... so to feel continuously enraged is so odd for me.
> But indeed, I am furious at depression, at anxiety, at both my psych and probably (shh... don't tell her) my therapist, definitely my father, etc. etc. I feel so neglected, defective, hopeless and scared. I am even acting out in bulimia again, which arises when I need to stuff and release anxiety. But neither of my psychs will touch my 15 year long e.d. with a ten foot pole. Argh. The med guy was surprised Parnate didn't help with bingeing urges since I'd told him it reduced my appetite. Well, silly man, bingeing has nothing whatsoever to do with hunger! /rant
> Thanks for listening. I posted an interesting link one comment up, I think. I'm going to reflect more on its contents. Dysthmia really hits home, though, I have to say.
