I saw a thread of yours not too long ago and you were poking fun at people who think there is a conspiracy to mis-educate or indoctrinate our children through school... (I know this might not seem relevant but bare with me)
I didn't comment in that thread because I was busy but you completely missed the point with that particular conspiracy. You see we do not think people like you (the average teacher) is responsible (well at least you are not directly responsible or "in on it") but you are made to follow the rules, set by people that are! You even told of a situation like that in the very thread! lol...
Now, I have a theory that deep down, you KNOW this, but you want to make excuses so that you can keep doing your job with a clear conscience, you are effectively burying your head in the sand! This obviously is having a massive effect on you and to try and deal with it you take drugs, given by a doctor, so that appears legit to you. But it is hiding the issue just like any other drug taking would...
I think you need to face the truth! I think you need to quit the job and teach in another capacity! If you want total teaching freedom then why not contact home ed groups and offer your services? If your child is of school age I would say you should take them out and teach them at home.
There is a conspiracy to indoctrinate and dumb down children, you just are not privy to it! Yet you see the effects every day! You see the manipulation every day too! You have been reprimanded for helping out children in a really good possitive way! You need to just admit that you are being used as a pawn! Get out!
Also I would say that exercise is a natural way to release "feel good" chemicals within the body. Do you or have you tried exercise? Just a half hour jog in the morning should do the trick.
Defo get off the meds, you can't fix this with a magic pill!
Oh and as others have mentined look into your diet...
I hope something in here can be of help to you. Good luck and really take some time to think and digest what I have said.edit on 28-5-2013 by mee32 because: (no reason given)

And I havok, find n necessary to post a reply to you.
Do you suffer from depression?
If so, and you are dealing with it without meds, you are truly lucky, but probably a completely miserable person.
Describing depression by someone who suffers it to someone that doesn't Is like describing color to someone who has been blind since birth,.
To properly treat it, often meds in conjunction with talk therapy work best,
If you don't suffer from depression, please ST*U

You are finishing a degree aren't you?
I've been on antidepressants since college. Been on anti-anxiety meds for three years. Been on Seroquel for almost three years. Guess what. It. Doesn't. Help. All I do is numbly go thru my day.
There's no joy in life. Nothing to look forward too. Nothing I want, except to stop feeling at all. No, I'm not suicidal, although there are days when I do wish all of this was over. I'm tired of it. Tired. Tired. So damn tired.
