hi. gosh i'm so sorry. do you have a psychiatrist? i'm clueless about the meds that you listed. sorry to be of no help there. but i do know that it took me a while to get where i'm at. and i'm not always where i want to be, but i am most of the time ... and i'll take it. it just seems that someone should know how to tweak your meds to help you. i know when sleep doesn't come, then your whole everything gets so messed up. if you sleep, things come into perspective. so is it ok to give up? i think it's ok to want to or want to reallyreally badly. but i bet if you look deep you'll find some desire to fight even if you're too tired to actually fight. it's that desire to fight, even if you can't do a thing, that will eventually pull you through this. sometimes you have to look small to feel like you can cope.

you did say some things in your post that you might not have noticed. for example, you mentioned anxiety and depression- both of which i know well- and yet you also mentioned your situation at work. and it occurs to me how you have it together enough to actually have a job (that doesn't mean you have to like it or that it's a good one....) but i'm at a phase in my own life where i am stable on meds and handling my anx/dep well enough but i am not yet to where i can handle the responsibilities of a job. sometimes it helps, as much as i don't like comparing, when you see that you might be doing one step better than somebody else. sometimes that gives perspective to help. fwiw.

take care,

terra
