i was diagnosed twelve years ago.
i have been through several years of therapy, with some pretty decent LCSWs, but i also had a couple duds too. i've been in groups, and even "checked in" for a month in 2003.
i have been on one or more meds for most of these twelve years. i think my max was five at once. various med "recipes" included prozac, zoloft, wellbutrin, serzone, effexor, xanax, trazadone, ambien, cymbalta, and a couple others i can't remember.
i did a few years of yoga, been in and out of a marriage, moved about the country a bit.
nothing quite took.
things got bad a few months ago. i ended up quitting my job. i weaned off cymbalta with my doc's help before i quit, because i am now uninsured. i remain unmotivated and isolated. i RARELY leave my apartment, and go day on end without talking to another human being.
i read a lot.
