i understand the stuck feeling. i feel that way often. ... It can be very wearing.
It's unfortunate you don't consider yourself to be near full remission. i thought that's sort of what you meant. But still, as you said, it's good to be much better than baseline, or worse.
i wish i could end w a sage piece of advice, but i have no idea. However... i sincerely hope your improvement continues to climb.

> > .. Yeah, SLS that Is good to hear you're doing well. You're on Nardil now, huh? i don't think you were last i recall, though it's been a little while. .. Best [non-abusive] antidepressant in existence, as far as i'm concerned. Continued good fortune to you.
> I added Nardil to my treatment regime at the end of last August. It did not start working until the end of November. Sometimes I feel like I am "stuck" at some level of illness. The rate of improvement is frustratingly slow. However, the trend is towards remission (I hope). I recently added lithium and phosphatidylserine. I was not expecting an acute antidepressant effect from either of these two substances. My rationale for doing this was to promote the growth of new neuronal membrane to form neurites (dendritic), so as to recover atrophied brain tissue and strengthen old connections. To my surprise, I experienced a more acute and stable antidepressant response of somewhat greater magnitude.
> I am far from attaining remission. I expect it to take another 12-18 months unless my recovery accelerates. This is far better than not responding at all, of course. I guess my brain was FUBB.
