> One thing I've noticed is you're hypervigilant about your mood state. You're very sensitive to changes and maybe just a little too anxious about them. You want to treat even the slightest instability with meds, when what you need are better cognitive coping strategies.

I agree.

It is hard to know exactly what one experiences, though.

SheilaC, the things written here are not meant to diminish or delegitimize your thoughts and feelings. No one can know exactly what you experience on the inside. However, Phidippus and I agree that you *seem* to be hypervigilant and look at every drug response and side-effect under a microscope. You do not seem to give any one treatment enough time to work or evaluate. Perhaps you should start again with a new doctor. I don't know. One step at a time, Sheila. Don't overwhelm yourself with so many thoughts about your illness and treatment right now.

I'm sure there are alternative treatments that people can suggest to you, but I think it best to take the time to pay attention to what Eric (Phidippus) has to say.
