Hi GG.

> I'm sorry you're experiencing this. It's so frustrating.

Being given a taste of real life only to be denied is torturous.

> You may have already considered this, but has there been anything situational going on that could trigger a depression?

Not really. I've been taking advantage of some IP psychotherapy for about 6 months, and there doesn't seem to be anything getting in my way. I have also been using cognitive behavioral strategies to help manage my life for years.

Light therapy sounds like a viable option. A friend of mine who does not exhibit any seasonality to her depression has been benefiting from using it for 30 minutes each morning. I am so tired of investing myself in all sorts of different treatments.

When I respond to treatment, the effect is unmistakable. It is like adding color to a black and white world. This response was the real thing. Unfortunately, my relapse was a true poop-out (tachyphylaxis), and occured in the absence of significant psychosocial stress.

I am starting to get depressed about this treatment failure. I really don't want to be bothered trying to fight it. Having one depression stacked upon the other doesn't make for a pleasant combination. I was counting on this stuff to work. I thought I was on my way...
