I'm not Scott and I hope you don't take this the wrong way. I'm just curious to know if you have tried alternative ways to being better for yourself. For example, exercise, therapy, building relationships/friendships, working on your ability to form and build strong friendships/relationships, meditation, yoga, bikram yoga. I know being really depressed and agitated and anxious makes it harder to do positive things for ourselvs. I am in that position right now. If it were not for the condition of my wrecked body, I probably would not be on this board right now. Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate psycho babble and what it has to offer.
If I were you I would add on a low dose of Lithium. Why Not? I mean, some life extensionists are taking it now.
I don't think lithium will do much for motivation.
How much xanax do you take? Xanax is not going to help your motivation. You are better off dumping xanax if you can, unless you just take it PRN.
Sorry for the mini rant, I just think that motivation has to come from within, not from medication. There may be underlying reasons for lack of motivation that need to be addressed.
