Thanks all. I may have a few useful things to share if anyone's got a loved one or friend or friend's loved one suffering from substance abuse, major depressive disorder/dysthmia/double-depression/bipolar II (especially treatment resistant), borderline personality disorder, misophonia, self-harm/self-injury, and/or suicidal ideation. PM or maybe we can share of an off-topic thread.
Didn't mean to hijack the thread. Just get worried when folks are skeptical of medicine when doctors don't explain what they are and how they work very well. They don't work for some people, 'tis true, but they might work for some who think they've tried everything and they're not even close.
There is no doubt that effective mental health treatment can be very difficult to get. And it's sometimes difficult to get people to keep taking their meds, too. We can only do so much to help people and it sounds like you did everything you could.
PS Sometimes, I've read ketamine and ECT can work in difficult cases. But they are not easy treatments to get.
Please forgive any typos or poor sentence structure. As I often say, you can have it perfect or you can have it now. Here, I choose now.
