Right now they are treating me a manic depressive, as that is the believed diagnosis. They are exploring deeper, to see if there is anything else "going on" so I suppose its a partial diagnosis.edit on 9-3-2014 by Walkingsenseless because: (no reason given)
I know what you are going through and I refused to take the meds as well. I have been on the right course now for twenty years and never been let down nor had any episodes since having faith in Christ
And for your sanity STAY AWAY FROM PSYCHO-BABEL DOCTORS. Shrinks are a bunch of nuts in a fruit basket.
Find peace in Christ alone.

The main cause of depression is a crap life, too hard, too many problems, too much stress, too many knocks and things just generally turning out bad. You are not dead yet and have a few lessons about what you don't want, so smarten up and get what you do want.

Well I was in a similar position a while back. I didn't seek help. Instead I got worse everyday and I just ran, I dropped everything and ran away. What I did during that time was face my deepest darkest memories and nightmares, day by day I ran, anywhere was good enough and thankfully I had a few good friends who gave me shelter here and there. I didn't sleep properly, just moving everyday I soon found outrunning what I'd seen and done was pointless. So I did what I could. Face it. I'd no money for meds I needed so I faced it, just learned to deal with it slowly and accept the pain, slowly ever so slowly I fixed myself back up, through it all I refused help from psychiatrists and psychologists due to the fact that someone close to me had to see them and in the end she couldn't be saved by them or me.
What I'll say is seek help. I know it sounds hypocritical but if you accept the help it will save you the pain and torment I endured. You don't want to waste the chance, think about it please I implore you.
Otherwise good luck you're gonna need it.
Did I overcome my sickness, I would like to say I did but even I'm not sure.
