> I'm just skeptical. If you look at the pathology of OCD, you'll find serotogenic ADs, namely SSRIs are the frontline treatment for the disorder because the PFC is usually deficient in serotonin.

interesting. My understanding is that the amygdala is "where it's at" with OCD. Also, just cos they're the frontline treatment doesn't mean they're effective of course o_0

ummm a good few months now. This is my 2nd dalliance with it.

all the classes and the prominent novels, yes. A fair few of the more noted combo's too.

My main problem is that even when I find a helpful med, my IBS cuts through its effect like butter. When my IBS pain is bad, my depression is bad and I've never been able to sever that causality. My next main issue is that every med that's helped me poops out between 1-2 months later.

As such it's highly likely that I will spend the next few decades suffering greatly. Awesome.


I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
