I just found your post, I had been worried about you. I'm glad to know you're still hanging in there. Sometimes it helps to remind yourself that these feelings are brought on by something purely physical and out of your control. Some day we will know more about how to control those chemicals in our brains, but for now it seems to be a guessing game. I hope you will see your doc and consider trying other meds. If you're not already, you might want to consider beginning research on all the meds out there along with your symptoms. I did and I found out things I never would have know just from the doc. Like the fact that some SSRI's are stimulating and some are sedating. Actually they used different words for it, so I had to pull out the dictionary and figure it out, but that's the way I understood it. So someone with bad depression might need one of the stimulating ones like Prozac, while someone who's depressed with anxiety might need something more calming, like Paxil. Or you may need a mood stabilizer, that worked wonders for my brother. Anyway, my point is, you have to do a whole lot of research on your own in order to get better. I'm still in the middle of research myself. Its pretty confusing, especially since most of the time the experts don't even know what they're doing. But I figure its better than being completely clueless. And it gives you back just a tiny, tiny bit of control, which can go a lon-n-ng way. Hang in there and keep in touch!
