> i vote for the meds, personally. antidepressants and neuroleptics, in particular. benzodiazepines aren't exactly empathy pills, either.

so I'm not a latent psychopath? I was hoping not! My impression of the MAOIs was that they would give me more emotional openness and less blunting. Aside from the ability to concentrate and less "hysteria" and suicidal thought, they haven't come through. Although anxiety is low and it would be tough to give up the cognitive abilities, and I still can function sexually.

I'm hoping that a low dose of naltexone will help with the compulsiveness. I'd still love to have my feelings and motivation for good, future-oriented decisions back also.

Thanks for the reassurances!
