> Congrats Scott! I don't come here much anymore but I do remember a lot of your posts and you were one of those with good advice/wisdom. Gives me hope as the struggle continues :)

I am profoundly sorry that you must continue to live your life that way. However, I'm glad that you haven't given up on your pursuit of a normal state of mind / brain. It's worth the struggle. I always knew this because I had a few brief remissions over 40 years of otherwise failed treatments. Most responses lasted for 3 days (not 2 or 4). I call it "tickling" the brain. I also had one longer robust, but incomplete response for six months while being treated with Parnate + desipramine. During these times, I found life to be incredibly easy and rewarding. I held close to me these memories while I agonized with no end in sight. Without these experiences, how could I possibly justify allowing myself to live? I couldn't.

Have you ever thought that depression and other mental illnesses are nothing short of an "altered state of consciousness"? I have begun to use that term with greater frequency. I never heard anyone else describe mental illness that way. Even my doctor didn't want to embrace the term.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
