For over the last ﬁve years I have suﬀered from severe depression. I felt ﬂat emotionally and socially and anxious. I have taken a variety of medications. They kept adding and adding medications until I went to my wonderful current doctor. I learned about the GeneSight test from my doctor. Taking the test was certainly easy. They swabbed my cheek and sent it in. I met with the doctor two weeks after the test. She went over the list and saw the list of medications I had tried. A lot of those medications were in yellow and red. One of the medications in the green I had taken 30 years ago. It is not prescribed as much now. So I tried it again along with another drug for anxiety. We got rid of all the other medications and added folic acid (indicated by MTHFR results). Now I am accomplishing things that were onerous before. I am playing and enjoying being in a band for senior citizens called New Horizon’s. I have done theater most of my adult life. I have auditioned and am in a play right now. I also joined a candle pin bowling league – that’s a New England thing. I have gotten back to playing golf – I hadn’t played for four years. I ran a 5k – I have not done that for 7 years. I have my life back. I feel like after 5 years I am enjoying myself and other people are enjoying me too. My wife said she ﬁnally got her Lenny back – the man she married. I now have energy and can handle things at an even level.
