I went through a program called Health Recovery in Minnesota--for help with both alcoholism and depression. They essentially believe we can right our bodies through vitamin and amino acid supplementation--reduce cravings for substances, and alleviate mental illness. In the fisrt few weeks they said I was going through "biological repair"--aside from aiming to help depression and alcoholism they were greared to repair damage from alcohol. They have a few books out --Joan Larsen is the head of that clinic and is also the author of that book.
It helped me repair; the program did not alleviate my depression, but it was probably extremely healthy to get off medications for a while and do megasupplementation to repair things.

Just a thought to look it up--perhaps you could even do phone consults to decide whether/what they could recommend for you.

This is just a brief answer-since this is really alternative medicine, further discussion would be directed to th other board--but thought I'd quickly mention this to you.

I can relate to you about fear of damage (physically and emotionally). I feared I had damaged myself by using alcohol and meds at the same time. I had various cognitive problems, tingling, dimming of vision, etc. It turned out to be B vitamin depletion. It took time but supplements corrected the condition. Medications are helping me slowly on the mood and anxiety front. So again, much can be healed with time and proper treatment.
We ARE resilient both physically and psychologically.
Ok Ill stop..take a good break from it all, and rethink options when you return.
