Hi, Jay.

As I mentioned earlier, biogenic depression leaves psychological damage in its wake, regardless of how well adjusted you were prior to its onset. Conversely, often times the first depression is the result of a psychological insult to the brain. Too much chronic trauma or psychosocial stress are the enemies of a healthy, although vulnerable brain. Your "angst" and existential crises could easily have generated the brain dysfunctions responsible for your mood instability. However, once triggered, it is the dysfunctional biology that perpetuates the depression, even though the original psychosocial stressors are removed. Your community worker may be helping you immensely by quieting your mind and reducing stress in order to allow biological somatic therapies to produce improvements that persist.


> But, grabbing hold of the biological chemistry with the new dopamine/gaba axis angle, is a step in the right direction, I think. I know Nardil has powerful pro-gaba qualities, so I am trying to simulate something similar to what you have with Nardil.


Wow, Jay. That's phenomenal. Congratulations. Combining dopamine receptor agonists with pro-GABA drugs is a new one on me. Very impressive. Do you know anyone else who has had similar results using your strategy?

Don't rock the boat. Don't fix what hasn't broken.

Continued health...
