...and haven't changed emotionally. Been on many medications, and was finally convinced to try Paxil, but haven't noticed any changes. Still feel like a failure and a lost cause for not being normal or for moving on. I really need some better insight instead of being ignored. sad   Anyone there?

Welcome back Blue!!

Well . . . maybe this one will work.

It's not your fault if your brain chemistry is off. Lots of things can cause that . . . including chronic illness and stress. You wouldn't feel like a failure if you had to take insulin . . . well this is the same thing. You are trying to balance out your brain chemicals.

Many of us have had to try different meds to find the right med or combination of meds. I hope you will keep us updated on how you are doing.
