Eric:

I was in therapy for much of the 1990s--group and individual. Obviously (well, obviously to me), I could be therapy for life, if I could afford it. But at the same time, I almost feel that my main issue is so biochemical, or so brain-based, that if I could "correct" or deal with that part of the problem, my never-ending worrying would dissipate to the point where I wouldn't need therapy. Much of therapy to me is getting someone to listen to my worries. Many of my worries, I think, are irrational, or based on endlessly negative projections. Yet, they are not completely irrational in my current state because I truly am at risk for homelessness and complete collapse (not being able to take care of myself) in my current condition. Anyway, my psychiatrist suggested adding or trying Abilify several times (I still have the samples he gave me over a year ago), but I never did it. I just didn't want the risk of diabetes, high triglycerides, massive weight gain, and other worries for a 10% (or whatever) improvement. 80% miraculous improvement, maybe; 10-20% improvement with no job, no prospects of taking care of myself and more dependance, nope. Not doing that anymore. Anyway, glad to hear your anxiety is under control. Has yours been a lifetime (since young childhood thing) or is it more recent?

Thanks,
Chris
