Jeroen, I just noticed that you posted this a few days ago:

I wonder if maybe, when you feel bad, you might forget that you felt better a little while ago? That's happened to me, and I used a mood chart to track what was really going on for me. I started to see the patterns in my moods, and could see when I had a trend towards feeling better. Before the mood chart, I would think I was just as miserable as I had been before starting a medication -- the mood chart helped me see when I had a consistent trend towards improvement.

I know that you and I have different diagnoses, different symptoms, etc, but I think that might help you, too. Do you think it's worth talking to your doctor about using a mood chart?

Also, do you talk much with your doctor? Does your doctor tell you why he/she's prescribing one medication rather than another, or discuss your reactions to these medications? (And I do hope you're trying to talk to your doctor -- it does make a difference for me, having a doctor I trust, who talks to me)

I'm very sorry I can't fix this for you, Jeroen. I do hope that some of my suggestions have been helpful to you, or at least that knowing you've got support here is comforting to you.
