Between the ages of 15 and 29, my world felt much as it seems yours does. I felt utterly hopeless, like nothing I could ever do would matter. I won the national title for figure skating, got a first class honours degree, followed by a masters, I even managed to get and do well in a job I badly wanted and find a wonderful partner. None of it mattered. I wanted to die because life hurt too bad and year on year, it seemed to get worse. I avoided people more and more as the years went by and felt the need to starve myself to death or injure myself in other ways if anything threatened to get in the way of my routines.

I have been diagnosed with aspergers, anorexia nervosa, OCD and depression.

I responded to your post because I felt deep empathy with what you wrote. I also thought maybe I could give you some hope. I say this because thanks to the advice I received from generous people at psychobabble, I now feel 100% better; the best I have ever felt, in fact. I spent 15 years trying meds prescribed by pdocs, who seemed to understand little of what I was going through. None of the meds they prescribed changed anything very dramatically for me. People at psychobabble suggested combinations I could try and spelled out reasons why these combinations might work for me, based on the way my brain chemistry had responded to previous meds etc. I could not be more grateful to them (especially JohnL). The combination I am on now works for me. I am now the person I always Knew I was but could never be. I still have aspergers, which means my life takes more planning than other peoples might and my anorexia and OCD are still active - though I am managing them better. I no longer feel hopeless or remoteley depressed.

I wish you all the best. Please keep trying with different meds. I am confident you could find a combination that would work for you.

Take care
