I am doing alright. I am actually taking california rocket fuel ++

The ++ stands for + ritalin. So mirtazapine, effexor and ritalin. The doses of each are very low. 7.5mg 37.5mg and 5mg respectively. Actually the doses tend to be less than this as I don't take everything every day.

In rats, prolonged exposure to pleasurable stimuli, i.e. stimulants, opioids, highly palatable food increases depresive symptoms.

SSRIs may in fact be working by supressing dopamine function - or, at least counterballancing dopamine with serotonin in many individuals. There is a strong link between addictive personalities, OCD and depression. This might be associated with high dopamine and low serotonin / gaba.
