Isa Posted December 16, 2009 Share Posted December 16, 2009 Hi. I'm 36 years old and have had recurrent, treatment resistant MDD since I was 13. I was hospitalized in 2002 and in 2003 - should have probably been hospitalized as a teenager. Kind of a miracle I didn't take myself out. I also have anxiety which is much better than it used to be, thankfully, but am becoming aware of trauma related issues and triggers that set it off. No formal dx in that regard, but a dx would just tell me what I already know. Just need to address it. My depression has been in a kind of remission for a few years - as long as I stay on top of it and don't let things get too far before tweaking meds. It's always there on the sidelines, kwim? It was rearing it's head again and I was increasing the Lamictal, but I'm uber-sensitive to meds and the side effects were intolerable. Going to try it again, going a different route. Other than that, I have 2 kids (one with MI), 6 cats and a dog; a warped, morbid sense of humor; and a very low bullshit threshold. So, I'll see you around the boards.
