> > Sometimes, people need dosages of Parnate exceeding 100mg to respond. I don't know of anything that can be used as a predictor of success with this strategy, but if you are going to try it, you might as well do it as soon as possible. Although I did better on Parnate at 120mg than I did at 80mg, it was an inadequate response, so I stopped taking it.

I am not accusing anyone of anything.

I just am confused about what's going on here just curious because I am confused.

Jack, I am so sorry. Tammy and I have been sharing a computer, and we have been careless about changing our names for each post. We'll try to be more aware of this in the future. Tammy and I beg your forgiveness.

I've got some warm fuzzies from your comment about my being warm-hearted. Thanks.

Sincerely,
Sco

Why are you so obsessed with people's personal lives and their posting records? Seriously?

I feel less safe with you on the board.

Please try not to shoot the messenger. It's less safe here because this is public and archived. It's helpful to be reminded of that. (There are also advantages to being public and archived. Life is full of trade-offs.)

Not very pretty. I don't know what else to do than to say I'm sorry. I could have said, "Stop it!

Dr. Bob has posted a reminder that Psycho-Babble is a public forum that is archived. I may not like your posting behaviors, but they are not uncivil, I don't think. The only way to censor your posts is for me to control where I point my mouse cursor.

I am mad and sad. I feel violated by you. It doesn't matter that you have the privilege to snoop through the archives to find and post words that some posters would like to forget. My face wrinkles when I ask myself, "why would someone do such a thing?" Could you provide an answer to this question?

I don't mind if you post to me or anyone else, but I ask that you exercise discretion in what you decide to do with the information you have collected. Although a poster sacrifices privacy when they submit a post here, that does not mean that what they post is not personal.

> I remembered a post that was on here a few years ago when so much censoring was going on that you had shared the same computer and Scott had not signed off. I remember because at the time. My husband had tried to use the same server to post on here and Dr Bob said no. One or the other could and then sign their name at the end of the post. I was then afraid that Dr Bob wouldn't like this and might result in at least a PBC. After remember this. I do think I like the new way we post now better. Monitoring ourselves. It was a fresh wound so that is how I remembered. Home hospital doesn't matter.


Good It should not!

I normally don't even use the archieves. In this case I did merely out of curiousity. To see if my memory was totally lacking. I don't hold anger or any negative emotion if can help it as it serves no purpose. I read out of curiously and Learning. That was my purpose in having my husband find babble which I didn't even ask him to do. He was curious about Cymbalta. Now I spend most time when home which isn't a lot either on facebook and work which is researching items to post on ebay. That is how we make a living and a good one now. See I've disclosed personal information I didn't have to. But what does it matter to me? Phillipa

Thats Cool. I kinda thought you were just curious and did not have any ill intent but I dont know you well yet and am a little wary of strangers on the Internet.

Phil, your posting got a bit sidetracked i see.
I'd like to rekindle it bc it speaks to what is going on with me. I am at the point where I've been flatly okay for a long while. My pdoc seems to think I'm doing pretty well. Cognitive therapy seems an invitation to deny what's going on in my head.
"Just okay" is enough for a while when you have pulled out of an awful place place but "just okay" for me is very far away from having a life.

Life? What's that?

:-(

Have you been diagnosed as having dysthymic disorder (dysthymia)? Double-depression?

Alternatively, are you simply a partial-responder to drug therapy? What is the best you have ever felt using drug therapy?

Have you tried Parnate?

What are you taking now?

ah, parnate, twice over the years scott

i once did quite well on lexapro but that ended with a thud and me in bed barely breathing at the end of the world

now it's cymbalta and lithium

how do we all do this without a sense of future?

Do some older people feel liberated without a sense of future?

I've got no future
My days are few
The presents not that pleasant
Just a lot of things to do
I thought the past would last me
But the darkness got that too.

What I had in mind was some people near death.
It's all *very* difficult, but they seem to have let go or learned dispassionate disinterested observation.
Perhaps they no longer feel they have a stake in things.
Calling things by their correct names helps. Not standing between yourself and the observed. (Not standing in your own light? Is that different?)
For me sharing this, it was wonderful, especially given what it was.
And I wonder if the same kind of outlook can be applied to depression and having to live without hope, because these people had none. In fairness I should say they didn't want any.
