> Well, then, let run right out and have a sex change! It's too bad it's the woman (who are also more sensitive to weight gain) that have the most problems. I really wish I'd find a doc who I could trust and was willing to help, rather than basically telling me I just a messed up person and not depressed since I don't respond well to SSRI's.

Did you know that the form of depression called "Atypical Depression" is only called that because when the syndrome was described, they said the patients with it were atypical, BECAUSE THEY DID NOT RESPOND TO THE TRICYCLIC ANTIDEPRESSION USED IN THE STUDIES???

OK, so they made up a sub-form of depression when someone didn't respond to amitryptiline, maybe it's time to make up a new one for those who don't respond to SSRIs? We could call it "Just A Messed Up Person And Not Really Depressed" Disorder, right?

(And I'm not trying to be mean -- I get frustrated by this, too, and so my sarcasm comes out. It's directed at the situation, not at you.)
