> I couldn't agree with you more. I have tried the following medications over the years: Prozac, Serzone, Cipramal, Aurorix, and Zoloft. Zoloft is the best but my doctor and I feel it is time to try and go without them for awhile. My program for coming off them spans 13 weeks so it is quite a slow process. Having experienced depression for most of my life, I have found ZOloft to be the most truly effective. However, I have come to learn that long term use of such a pill can do permanent damage to brain wiring.
> I believe I have some form of bioligical depression - and there are certainly examples of this in family members BUT I feel it is important to face problems rather than use a pill to block them out. Depression - yes I know only too well that it can prevent us from functioning on a day to day basis but often depression is the result of unresolved problems.


I'm so very happy to hear that you have reached that realization. I have always felt that learning to deal with pain, frustration, or any negative emotion is something that must occur in life. I think that alcoholizism and illegal drug dependence is initiated by a lack of ability to deal with these negative emotions.

You sound like you are well on the way to achieving the inner strength to tap within yourself for emotional sustenance. Congratulations, and good luck in your continuous efforts to maintain emotional wellness.

It's a day-by-day thing, now isn't it? We are always learning.
