Hello again CC,
I'm really sorry that I missed your reply. I have been preoccupied and my wife hates every minute I spend on the computer. She thinks I'm obsessed. I'm at the library right now so that just proves that she's right. I feel really bad that I can't offer anything other than my support and empathy. Empathy because I'm bipolar and when I'm depressed life is so painful I can't even describe it. Unlike your experience, lithium has helped. I'm trying Lamictal and it's too early to tell whether it's going to help. You may want to ask your doc about it.
I want to ask you something if you feel like conversing. What were you doing when you last felt some satisfaction? There is some relief to be had beyond the chemistry with doing activities that make us feel good about ourselves. This is a tough question to answer when you're down. But even if it was a long time ago I'd love to know when you felt good about something (notice I didn't say happy). Anyway, I hope that things begin to improve for you soon. We're probably thousands of miles away from each other but I feel your pain.
