> Buffet: of course if being argumentative makes you happy, by all means proceed. Personally, I definitely don't see the point in continually searching through drugs and more drugs and whatever else. But if you are HAPPY trying things that continually fail, then by god more power to you. What EVER makes YOU happy.

I'm sorry Athena, but I wasn't being argumentative. I agree with your frustrations and do see your point. When I said join a gym, blah blah blah... I meant it! These have been things that have pulled me out of depressive episodes on occasion. I was trying to say that any change of pace will sometimes change your mental outlook. I was saying that taking the meds for me has been a good thing, and when one med doesn't work (or poops out) I look forward to trying out a new one in hopes that it helps (changing meds is another change of pace thing for me).

When I find myself trapped in my apartment because of low energy levels and depression, there comes a point where I just jump up and drive somewhere in attempts to just do something. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. There is no "answer", but there are things that one can do in attempt to combat depresion and other mental illness, and taking the drugs has helped me more than hindered me. I don't see it as instant gratification. For me, instant gratification is going out and using a street drug or alcohol for an immediate change in mood, which is something I absolutely CANNOT do anymore because I'm prone to abuse. Taking an AD is definitely not instant grat, but I don't think that was what you were getting at, right?

Hope this clarifies what I was getting at.
