> > > Well, I wrote a couple of weeks ago about my trip to the Dr. and wanted some advice. I only saw a regular Dr. so we didn't make any major changes to my pysch meds. (I will be seeing my pysch Dr on the 1st of Oct) The only thing we did was change my Paxil to name brand. It did make a difference, but I feel it slowly wearing off. Why does this always happen to me? I've tried EVERYTHING out there. I've suffered from depression since I was a child, I'm now a 28 yr old stay at home mom who needs to snap out of it.

> > > So MAOIs are my next step. I guess one of questions, is it likely to wear off just like the others? How long is a wash out off Paxil? ANY advice would help....thanks

> Before I put chemicals in my system, I thought life would always be a struggle, I thought I was just a sad person. Then I was introduced to my first chemical four years ago and I experienced joy, emotions and took an active part in my life. Depression and anxiety are something that I've dealt with since I was a child. Its in my family. I'm tired of standing on the sidelines and watching everyone participate in life with a drive and purpose. I know what I'm capable of. When these chemicals worked with my own chemicals, I was that person. Have u ever been depressed? If so, and if you dont use chemicals, what do you do to help your depression. If you even are depressed?

You wrote,[...in my family...when the chemicals worked...what do you do...?]
There is an important phenomenem called the placebo effect that is something that I would like for you to look up on your own if you are not aware of the updated research concerning such. We could use this in any discussion here. There is also research concerning hereditary aspects of depression that I also would like for you to look up if you are not up to date on the research for such.
Now as to depression, I have a view that could be different from many psychiatrists concerning such. I have depression in relation to BP type which could be in some ways different from the unipolar type. I consider depression a gift, but to explain that could have me need a great amount of space and time here.
Depression in my perspective is death. I see this death having an origin and a way to escape from it. I do experiance depression and I am very vulnerable to having it overtake me and I walk on a very narrow road and do fall by the wayside into the depths of depression, and one could be pushed. But I think that there is a way to overcome this death, and climb up to the road again. This way is in understanding what in one's thinking has the potential to induce depression and what in one's thinking can overcome depression.
This involves the concepts of Judaism as revealed to me. One concept involves the mind. It has been revealed to me that there are two minds, one leading to death, the other leading to life and peace. Which mind that one uses then as it has been revealed to me, could then determine the state of either being in depression (death) or life and peace.
This could mean for one to start over in life with hearing a new song.
Lou
