There's no point in struggling alone, and we all struggle. I was diagnosed with depression years ago, and I've been on meds for it for at least 7 years. I can't remember exactly. I was tried on lots of different ones, then gave up because they were all making me so sick. But the one I'm on now works great, so well in fact that at times I think, I don't need this stuff, I'm fine! Then about 2 weeks later, I remember why I was on it.
