You know, I'm reading the summary of Levin's 2007 book in Wikipedia, in which he says depression's societal sources need to be confronted, and I find myself nodding my head in agreement. Many times I have thought if there were only a more compassionate job market, a more compassionate healthcare system, a way for me to navigate a world that does not seem like a Social Darwinist nightmare everyday, things might be better for me. But then I go out into the world and I see most people functioning relatively okay-ly, or at least non-clinical-anxiety-disorderly (my forte), and I think, "Well, I guess I've just got to find the right med to shake off this brain damage from my family'/s multigenerational codependence, depression, anxiety, and inability to function in the world."

But then I read that artIcle in alternet and I have to say that despite all the societal forces that contribute to my inability to function, I don't think Bruce Levin has ever experienced the kind of life-ruining 24-hour-a-day-365-days-a-year-panic/anxiety that I do. My anxiety disorder, though environmentally aggravated by societal forces, has a deep biological (or unconscious) component that demands some type of treatment if I want to do anything before I die. I wish that this were not the case, but it is.
