I have been depressed all my life. Since I was a young girl. I have seen several counsellors , pychotherapist etc, since I was about 17. I am now 28.
I have been on anti depressants on many occassions. The last time I was on effexor for two years. Although they helped at first after a while they just made me a numb , emotionless freak. I finally managed after great difficultly to come off them last year. I am still a numb , emotionless freak and I am still depressed.
I have been back to the doctors and begged her to help me find some way to get out of this black hole that is surrounding me but the only options are medication or counselling. I know counselling does help many people but it doesn't for me.
So what am I supposed to do , they tell you if you feel like this then you should ask for help. But there isn't anything that can help me
