Look at the dates of Mickj's last five or six posts. It may be a few months before he catches back up.

I also seemed to get some relief from some other health issues by taking some 'time release' niacin.

It is sad to think that I never really will be happy.
Mick, I believe I've heard that Vitamin E also helps to boost energy levels too.
And incidentally, you will be happy. Don't forget that this is also the time when people need to get plenty of sunlight because they're stuck indoors due to the cold weather ... well at least in my area of the country.

In the past, I have found St Johnswort helpful for mild anxiety/depression.

FD, thank you for sharing your own experiences. While I don't suffer from anxiety, I have at times shown a lack of empathy for sufferers around me and it helps me understand it to hear your story.
I'll try to be more patient and not respond so automatically with "get over it" kind of unhelpful commentary. Thank you!

You're welcome. Patience and empathy are important for sure, but sometime the best thing you can do is to gently coax the anxiety sufferer out of his/her comfort zone. Anxiety, if left unchallenged, will progressively shrink a person's comfort zone and range of activities. That's often when people get depressed. Sometimes, a gentle kick in the butt from a relative is all the necessary and welcome encouragement we need to start fighting back.

Thanks for all the replies. I appreciate all your support. It is nice to have real people take time to reply.

I have tried a lot of different (15 to 20?) medications and they all made the anxiety worse.

I even went so far as to spend time in a psychiatric hospital (absolutely horrible!) I also tried a couple months of ECT treatments (not fun, still feel some memory effects.)

I agree that I do have to just 'white knuckle' it and there is some power in that.

Wish you all the best. thanks again.
