All these drugs that 'cure' depression and anxiety do is numb your mind and make you a zombie... sure your not depressed but your not anything at all. My counsellor at school once tried to tell me to get anti-depressants and my parents actually went to the doc with me and got me a prescription. From the first mention i was adamant that drugs would not help the problem, andi refused to accept them. My parents didnt end up buying them because i told them i wouldn't take them.
My point is, modern medicine is all about drugging the patient and slicing them open. These arent the only options. My depression left after a year or so and all it took was alot of positive thinking on my part. Thats all it takes to throw depression.
