1/ Thread: New study forthcoming on whether #gene-testing can help guide #antidepressant selection for #depressed patients who have failed to respond to 1 or (on average) 3-4 trials of medication. I have been skeptical: mostly, scant added value…
2/ & I found the reporting of this study annoying. On the primary endpoint, improvement in average #depression rating scores, the gene-testing failed. Patients whose MDs chose new meds w/o help of gene tests did just as well—& yet news reports suggested that tests can help…
3/ That's because the gene testing led to a choice of new meds that led to significantly more remissions (patient no longer depressed) and responses (halving of symptom burden). In general, in drug trials, response/remission shows antidepressants to better effect…

Thread: I’ve long been a mildly depressed person. I sought help once and they told me I had PTSD.

That didn’t work so 20 years later I went to my PCP because I wanted to stop feeling stuck, he gave me Zoloft.

What follows is a thread of the positive life changes I’ve noticed
First: This wasn’t something I expected at all, but I’ve long been the “omg my grandmother died” type when doing oral presentations in front of groups.

...and I’m forced to do biweekly new hire orientation at my company.

About a month ago I started to enjoy it and excel at it.
2: I’ve noticed that my sweet tooth is almost dead. I still have bad habits but if I say “I want 3 Reese’s cups...I eat 3 instead of the whole bag”

Likewise, I’ve stopped snacking at work, or going for seconds at dinner.

A Thread for Men: When your #woman is #emotional, #crying or #stressed out, do not hold it against her. One of the lies of #feminism is that men and women are the same, including that we should process #emotions the same way. Reject the lie. Listen and learn in the posts below.
#Women have much greater #hormonal fluctuations each month than #men do. Simply put, a woman's thought life and #emotions are more prone to high highs, and low lows. This isn't a "design flaw" but rather how #God made a #woman to be in touch with the needs of small #children.
Nothing is more short-sighted as a #man than viewing a #woman as an "overly emotional" or "flawed" version of a man's thought process or #emotions. A woman that does not let her emotions out will become very #passiveaggressive, #depressed or #angry. Your job is to be an #outlet.
