Yes, I just came upon this place not long ago myself... lots of info!
And I've been dealing with this special brand of misery for a long time also, and sometimes i think i've have gotten used to it, so much so that it's hard to imagine actually improving my outlook on life and living, and would I even recognize that if it did happen. But I keep trying this and that, anyway.... in case I'm wrong.
If you put all your pasts meds and what else you've tried in your signature, then people here have a better idea what you've already tried and can better suggest alternatives.
