Dear Linkadge,

Cc: Psycho-Babble

---

Why should you read something of mine that is so long?

At this point, I really don't care if you read it or not. It doesn't seem to matter to you the efforts that others (me) invest in you in order to help you achieve remission.

C'est la vie.

Obviously, my starting this thread, which is a repost of what I wrote to you personally along another thread, is meant for all to read and perhaps profit from. You elected not to read, so...

In my not-so-humble opinion, you wasted the last 22 years of your life, and still elect to continue to travel along the same circular path. If you never get well, it won't be because the medical community couldn't get you well. It will be because you couldn't.

Do you really think that I went out of my way to write interminably long posts to you in an attempt to get only you well? Do you really think that I want to help you because we are friends? (That won a smirk). Think of me as being riddled with altruism such that I looked past your antipathy towards me. It's been a whole lot of years, right my friend?

If you are truly looking to achieve remission, you should go back and read every word in my post to you. Every single word. Every single link. I am convinced that my post contains wisdom far beyond anything you or your doctor will ever come close to possessing. Most of the pioneers in the field who treated me in the 1980s are now dead. They told me things you will never see in the medical literature, and it certainly won't come from your doctor - Whether a GP or psychiatrist. If your doctor is a GP, that would explain why you were never prescribed MAOIs. I hope that this is not the case, though. Which of the doctors who treated you were willing to prescribe a combination of:

1. MAOI + TCA

2. MAOI + Wellbutrin

3. High-dosage Parnate (150 mg/day)
+ Desipramine 300 mg/day
+ (methylphenidate or amphetamine)
+ supratherapeutic dosages of T4 thyroid hormone
+ Throw a little Parlodel in there, too.

Anyone?

Good luck with that.

Did you think I was showing off?

I was.

My clinical knowledge is at least as valuable as your knowledge of neuropsychobiology. Mine was at least valuable enough to help me attain remission - at least temporarily.

My efforts really weren't for you only, Linkadge. It was for everyone else. I thought people should finally get a better idea as to my background and knowledge base. If you don't find my CLINICAL information and suggestions to you compelling, then I guess you will go back to studying gene alleles, the transmembrane G-protein receptors they encode for, and the functional receptor molecule domains as they facilitate signal transduction and create second messenger cascades. It sounds like a good way to spend / waste the rest of your life. See, I can sound smart, too. The hell if it got me anywhere - although clinical researchers and successful clinicians always love talking to me about all sorts of neuropsych stuff. I've picked many a brain. Networking is good, too. If you find one good one, they will usually lead you to other good ones. It works.

* My hope is that others might see in me what you refuse to look at - another resource.

Linkadge - The wisdom isn't mine. Don't you get it? I'm sharing the wisdom of two generations of psychopharmacologists, many of whose names litter the medical literature. This wisdom will probably not be made available to you directly by me again. I don't see the purpose. I hope this changes at some point. In the meantime, I hope others find some of what I wrote to you as being valuable for themselves, as they continue with their pursuit of mental health.

I hope your depression remits spontaneously.

I don't think you ever much cared for me since we both appeared on the board 22 years ago. Lots and lots of fighting. In 2001, you were shouting at the top of your lungs (figuratively) that these drugs don't work. Huh? Why are you now taking them? Did you finally change your opinion and come to agree with me after all?

It is with great effort that I remained civil - or at least tried. Forgive the occasional sarcasm.

I hope your research and self-experimentation yield results.


- Scott


* I didn't have the wits about me to proofread this thoroughly.


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.
