Re: Depression Advice Please
Thanks for sharing your experience with me. It makes me see things a little differently I guess, knowing that I am not the only one reluctant to take any medicine for this. I guess, I feel it would be a final admittance of what I perceive as a flaw in myself. My doctors think I am stupid for not giving them a try, but I am scared. I am scared to admit that I really am not coping, that I really can't 'pull myself together'.
I am glad they finally found something that helps you. And I guess I never really considered how widely this affects people. I shouldn't be ashamed, I have friends who have taken anti-depressants and I have never thought them a lesser person for getting the help they need.
Yeah, I know I can't be thinking of kids yet. Beside, I am not physically able to conceive at the moment because I am still too thin (although I look fat, sorry I needed to clarify that) to menstruate, and haven't done so in years. I may be unable to have kids anyway. I guess the thoughts about kids though, is just symbolic of me actually wanting something more from this life. Not to live this unhappy and this sick forever.
Thanks once again,
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.
