I look at all the people around me, and all those I know, and realize I will never get that back. Heck, even if I was completely better tomorrow (about a 1 in 1 billion chance or worse), I'm just way too far behind the game.

i used to think that too, but now that i am better i am slowly retraining myself... shouldn't take too long at all... maybe 4 months? plus all this time not working i have just realized has given me an incredible number of contacts so there are so many possibilities (friends who can get me jobs, etc)

> I too have felt that recently, the new drugs have fallen WAY off. In the nineties there was always something new out there, it seemed. Then it turned into promises of something right around the corner. Now, practically nothing. Heck, even the "me-too" drugs like Reboxetine are getting crushed. The drug companies won't look for something novel until they cannot make mad money on the current SSRI hypothesis anymore. It's too risky to try developing compounds about which almost nothing is known. It's a waste of money for them. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't have a breakthrough for decades, or even longer.

i dunno i really like low dose abilify .....
only complaint is that i don't get really excited like other people do... i don't know if that's the abilify or the benzos .... (i take a LOT of benzos)
