> Interesting that you mention St John of the Cross. I only know about him because TS Eliot wrote about him and Eliot would have been seriously depressed by our standards. OTOH Eliot drank a fair bit, smoked, and ended his life on barbiturates.

I'll definetely read that book. I'm always looking for spiritual experience to mine. I don;t blame T.S elliot. I'm drunk right now, sometimes that pain can be too much. I think the anxiety pills are o.k for me because they allow me to interact with the world in a more rational way. I've tried pretty much every treatment out there for depression (besides ECT, MAOI's, and ADDERRALL) and I"m not sure that depression is my diagnosis as much as God taking away the pleasures of my life to open an experience of him beyond the senses. I believe theres always hope, and God loves the worst of people in the world. So I don't always know pain is such a bad thing. But social anxiety is crippling and doesn't allow me to find my way. I think it's o.k for me in God's eyes to take this medicine, atleast for the time being.
