Hi, Rose.

> My mind is simply not working and I am very scared.

Would it help if anyone told you not to be scared?

You wouldn't think so, but...

Don't be scared.


Being scared is a perfectly normal reaction for the position you find yourself in. I've been there, too. People tried to be helplful, but I couldn't make them understand the intensity of the frustration and pain. People really, really want to help. Please understand that friends and family cannot tolerate seeing your pain any more than you can tolerate experiencing it. Try not to get too frustrated with them. Writing letters to the people who you want to understand you is an effective way to communicate.

About being scared...

Take into consideration that you might be experiencing a constant background anxiety right now that you have no control of. It will surely make any appropriate anxiety much, much worse and greatly exaggerate your legitimate fears. Add on to that the depression itself, which will make every thought you have "feel" negative. Thus, life feels negative. The pain is real, even if your perceptions are skewed by your psychobiology.


It's not you. It's not the world. It's your brain.

You obviously know this - just a gentle reminder.

Why should you have hope?


You may be treatment- resistant, but you are NOT refractory (look up the world). You do respond things - multiple things. It is LOGICAL at this point to anticipate that you will respond again to a *slightly* different treatment strategy.

Don't worry.


Let us both sleep well tonight.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
