A pretty remarkable story of a very successful, the Dreyfus Fund, gentleman who became very depressed in his mid 40's.
It was the late 1950's and his doctors weren't getting anywhere. Dreyfus had a dream about electricity and electrical impulses in the body. He asked his doctor for Dilantin and was virtually back to normal almost immediately. He didn't have any problem with side effects and has stayed well on the med for decades.
He quit two very successful businesses to devote his time to research and to get the word out to doctors around the world. I saw a university that had a Jack Dreyfus Chair in psychiatry.
Not saying to take Dilantin, obviously, but gut instinct is our best guide.
And, it's a pretty motivating story. Mr. Dreyfus was a pre-Babbler, pointing out to his doctor that he thought it would work. His doctor agreed. Out of 10,000 meds, he chose Dilantin.
The rest is history.
I think we owe it to ourselves to find doctors who listen, who don't blow us off, and don't look at us like we're crazy when we have a 'feeling' about a treatment. I think this story illustrates that we all have hope of finding our way.

Good Luck Bookgurl
