I haven't tried every medication out there, though I've tried about a dozen, and it turns out there's no med to treat feelings of crushing loneliness and worthlessness brought on by years of self-isolation/avoidance brought on by years of actual rejection and ridicule. Go figure.
According to the mental health professionals, though, I just wasn't trying hard enough/was expecting too much/need to exercise more/just like being miserable. Not their fault, not the meds' fault; solely mine.
If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Det. Devetko: "Definitely."
(It's legal now!! But Kristeva's already married. ;_; )
