Boy, is he ever right on all this. He's a little cynical, but other than that, he has driven the nail right into the woodwork. Unlike his eight weeks for his antidepressant to take hold, it took me five weeks for my Prozac to start working for me. And nobody upset me: not even a horrible Sears auto repair section, or stupid women drivers, who either never use their turn signals, or wait until they are actually turning off the road. I just smile and watch them leave my life, while I continue on my own path.

I'm now taking 'citalopham', which is the generic for Celexa, a later and improved SSRI. And I am a true believer. I worry about all the children being prescribed SSRIs, but for adults, especially this adult, they are a godsend.

One part of his article I particularly liked was this:

Quote:At the age of 19, I summoned up my courage and asked to see a psychiatrist at the Student Health Center at UC Berkeley. That’s not an easy thing to do when you’re as terrified as I was. Just getting to the door of the clinic was like walking across the Mariana Trench. And it was all for nothing—no, worse than nothing; it left me feeling much worse than before.

They assigned me to a Freudian psychoanalyst who treated me by asking about my childhood and listening to me tell him that I was the most worthless excuse for a human being ever born. He reacted to my confessions by nodding blandly.

You can imagine what effect that had on a friendless 19-year-old already consumed with self-loathing. I felt that my worst fears had been officially confirmed by a specialist.

Part of his problem was where he lived and went to college. I'd probably have suicided if I had to live there for any extended amount of time. Either that or I would be a hopeless Leftard, not only depressed, but angry, and totally antisocial to boot. S13S6

(I thought you would like the article.... of course he is dead wrong, all one needs is Vodka, perhaps mixed with beer... perfectly legal, not overly expensive, and works).

UC Berkeley? No need to suicide, simply choose between pot, LSD and mushrooms, or take them all... this is what California is good for.... S6

Ahh, the Russian antidepressant: vodka. Works great for a few hours, and must be repeated continuously, day by day.

I pretty much gave that stuff up a while back. Too many wasted calories. S5

Do you mean chemical or genetic?

Possibly this is of interest.

I'll try to explain this, from my perspective, when I get back from running errands. And I'm not going to go into the 'genetic' thing. Rather, from the actual chemical interaction. I'm not a neurologist, but have spent a fair amount of time understanding how brain chemicals are produces, used, and then removed from the pool through 'reuptake'.

But to put this in a simple way, your three family cases are almost certainly due to the failure of the brain to produce certain brain chemicals, most likely serotonin.
