    Well, I got a dose change 3 weeks ago. It worked. I no longer have depressive episodes. Unfortunately, I no longer have euphoric episodes either. This sucks... Why did it have to take away the ups? Why can't it just take away the downs? Life seems pretty so-so now... Hooray.

    you could always be your own director and create your own euphoric episode? Like... don't let the medication control how depressed or happy you'd be.

    I guess sometimes in order to get rid of the bad stuff we have to lose some of the good stuff?
    Is there some other medication you could try ?

    Pretty hopeless. I'm back to my previous theory, that the medication is worthless and my friendships are the dictator of my mood. The hopeless part comes from the fact that my friendships are going to shit.

    On the other hand, it might've worked briefly, but is still not enough. I might push up my appointment with the psychiatrist and move it up another 25mg.

    I started on meds 3 weeks ago and am starting to go numb. No feelings exept an overwhelming sense of why bother. The doc says she wants to increase my dosage. I fear it's not going to change anything just turn me into some kind of zombie.

    I've never been so much a zombie as when I'm depressed.

    I know what you mean but at least then I was the zombie. Now I don't really seem to be me anymore. It's like I'm trapped in a different zombie that's not even me.
