I’ve been depressed since my 20s (am in my mid-60s now). A year ago I took a nosedive and became anxious as well as much more deeply depressed. Everything scares me – even something as mundane as taking my car through the car wash. I used to read and listen to music all the time. Now I haven’t read or listened to anything in a year. I’ve been in outpatient groups and on a number of medicines – the latest group is buspar, anafranil, Seroquel, klonopin, lamictal and Viibryd (I’m weaning off that). Every once in a while – say, once a week – I feel OK, the way I used to when I was moderately depressed. The rest of the time is just unbearable. What’s next? Transcranial magnetic stimulation? ECT? Thank you for listening.
