Thank you luckyspec- I now feel more depressed after reading your post. Obviously you have never been so low that you don't think anything can help-not even the meds. It took me a long time to come out of denial about my depression. I always told myself that I could get better on my own . My parents took meds and I was somewhat asshamed of them- thinking they weren't "strong" enough or maybe too lazy to do get better by themselves.
Soon I was at a point where helping myself could not even be considered an option. I have no idea how I got to that point and never thought I would. It's weird how you can feel so helpless and switch all your beliefs around cause you're so desperate. I always wanted to do everything naturally- no drugs!! I wanted to lose weight naturally, eat only natural foods and of course make myself happy.
With my parents encourgement I decided to give medicine a chance. To this day I've tried four AD's but have never been on them long enough to achieve the happiness that I long for because of weight gain or unbearable side effects starting.
I am not giving up yet though- I have faith that something will help! I know I can't soley rely on the drug alone and have to be strong and fight the depression. I will take anything to help me get on the right road... I don't plan on being on AD's forever, but will if that's what it takes then fine-- I just need to be helped out of this hole I am unable to crawl out of. Hopefully something will help me feel better and I will be able to practice those feelings until I am confident to feel "happy" on my own. AD's can be looked at as coaches- you are learning a new sport (happiness) and need the coaches help to get you better, so you practice and practice with the coach until you are ready to go out and play a game. If you win the game you can go on to practice by yourself...and if you lose you may need to go back for the coaches assistance.
Everyone is different- of course we know this. We call react to meds differently, our illnesses aren't exactly the same and some cope better than others.
Life is too short to mope around and wonder if you're ever going to get better- take all the help you can get =) DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE HELP IS AS LONG AS YOU'RE HAPPY!
God Bless Everyone.
