Oh sure, while I'm more than happy to talk to anyone about my lex fix - the whole being suicidal thing isn't common knowledge. I'm not really sure I'll ever recover. Speaking to my mother on the phone the other day, it was interesting to find that she mentioned 4th grade as the onset, which I agreed with. I guess I see it as more of a chronic thing that I'm glad I've learned some more effective ways to manage. I'm not sure I would have had the strength to keep trying this stuff if it lex had gone as badly for me as pax and Zoloft had gone for you. I'm actually on 20mgs of lex - 10 just wasn't doing it, but I've always had a high tolerance for meds, alcohol, etc.

This is getting a bit addictive for me - but I recently dropped the head nodding therapist who was convinced that there must be a root to my problem. My response was to ask how anyone with half a brain could go through this world without being depressed. Anyway, it's an exchange of time I guess and I've found this quite a bit more productive. The therapist was very hesitant to say anything about the medication. I'm not one to think that you have to have been there to be of use, but it seems like she could have said something besides asking a bunch of useless rhetorical questions.

It's been a long time since I've read Flowers for Algernon, but it had such an impact on me. Probably not the best thing to be rereading now. Let's just hope the lex works till they approve something new.

Perhaps we should send the makers of Lexapro a fruit basket.

Lex, Lexey, Alexis…it's all pretty much the same…
