> Racer,
> I made it all the way to the bottom of your post. And the prize is I get is to try and help you!

Thank you. I appreciate not only your help, but also that you read the whole dang thing!

> I'm a non responder. I come from a long line of anxious women. And I don't want to have to take another med that might make me fat. Errr fatter...

Yeah, that's part of it. And it's a hard part for me to get past. (Gee, you'd almost think I had issues around weight and food, huh? And through two and a half hours of assessment, I never once mentioned having an eating disorder...)

> So I feel your pain. Try to take the med for just one day. And then another day.

That's part of what makes this so hard -- if I do that, I'll be taking the medication. How crazy is that? The idea of taking it is so overwhelming. {shrug} I know I'm nuts, but it really does feel as though the world will end if I do take it.

>Have a "safe person" with you who understands you are a bit nuts on this and swears they will call for help if you keel over.

:-) Yeah, there's an idea. Sure makes me wish I wasn't so isolated. My husband will try to help, he's good that way. I'm the problem, and I know that.
> I hope that helps a bit. For what it is worth I think going to a psychopharmacologist is a good idea.
> MB

It does help, and I thank you. At least I know I've got company I can enjoy in this cuckoo's nest...
