I'm always thinking on your behalf. I am *very* glad to hear that your kidneys are recovering.

I forgot - What was the story with lamotrigine (Lamictal)? For (bipolar) depression, most people find 200 mg/day to be ideal. However, lamotrigine is not an all-or-nothing agent. I had a partial response to 200 mg/day that was stable. However, 300 mg/day was a home run.

I am very sad at this moment. I remember my life before remission. I remember the altered state of consciousness that depression was for me. All mental illnesses are altered states of consciousness. Being drunk is an altered state of consciousness.

Depression was a hideous thing to wake up to every morning and to go to bed with every night.

I have survivor's guilt.

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.
