  • To clarify the above; my depression is the best it's been in years, but like the whacka-mole game, the decrease of depression has lead to an increase in anxiety/stress and more panic attacks than I've ever experienced in my entire life. I am NOT suicidal, however I have always experienced suicidal ideation. Regarding my eating disorder, this came on in my mid 20's. It's not related in anyway to body-dismorphia. I am not anorexic or bulimic, nor have I ever been. Last year i was hospitalized due to extreme weight loss, suicidal depression and anxiety. Traditional and new antidepressants have never worked on me, more so they render negative responses.
