What counts is what you want

Deneb, the first part of my post, about prazosin, was directed at Scott.

There is an almost complete absence of wishes and goals for your life in your posts. It seems as though other people - your pdoc and several posters, would love to see you have a full life, with important other people in it, and fulfilling work and activities. But you don't express any of the same wishes.

If you go back and look at your posts from several years ago, you had very strong and definite goals for both your work and your social life. What has happened? That is such a loss for you. Rather than just accept everything your pdoc tells you, why not become informed about possible downsides to SSRIs for you now, as well as the possibilities for other medications and for therapy, and have a truly adult discussion about all of them. No doctor is right 100% of the time; that is why she needs your informed input. If you don't give it, she has to end up treating you like a child.

A note on therapy: you can do it just as well as anyone if you want to. There is no right or wrong to it. Your pdoc's training is probably not so much in therapy as in medications. You have probably never had a real therapy experience. I think you would be surprised at how much you got out of it.

One further note on living arrangements: no-one is asking you to move out, but I think everyone is hoping you'll develop a fuller and happier life while you have the support of your parents. That is really what they are there for.

If you want to make changes in your life, you will really have to figure out what has made you lose your motivation. Everyone here will cheer you on, but no-one can do it for you.
