Thank you all for the responses.
I am pleased to see that a lot of you have found ways to cope or have found methods which have worked to treat or cure your depression. I take Xanax
for my anxiety and depression and it keeps me stable. It is not my preferred choice in dealing with my depression as I have strong opinions against
medication, but unfortunately I exhausted all options to dealing with depression prior to taking Xanax, and none of them worked for me.
I once found myself on the naive side of the depression argument; I too saw it as a fabricated disorder which people claimed to suffer from. But when
I experienced it for myself, my opinion changed very quickly. Depression is something I would not wish on anyone.
It does not have to come to experiencing it yourself to understand what we go through. All it takes is education, an open mind, and a little empathy.
We aren't seeking attention or content with wallowing in our own self pity. We do not choose to feel this way. It is a condition we have been cursed
