Better living through chemistry, eh? I strongly urge you to seek out some face-to-face counselling. It's been proven through studies that one-on-one counselling has much better long term success in dealing with depression and anxiety disorders than medications alone do. Most universities have free or very low cost counselling services. Please check this out at your school. And don't fret about confidentiality - they are bound by the same confidentiality laws as any other health care provider. If they went around talking about their clients, they'd end up with no clients and loads of lawsuits.

And try to not worry so much about your upcoming genotype tests. It's very rare - pretty much unheard of - for a treatment naive individual such as yourself to have a "super horrible" resistance profile. Chances are definitely in your favour that you have no resistance at all. So hang in there!

Thanks for keeping us posted.

Hello TFE,

Just checking in to see how you are doing. Are you with family and friends for the holidays?

Have you been able to get to a counselor? Are things going any better?
