    Probably the best thing I have ever done,

    I have so much confidence, no fear, no stress, I am all that is man, and I am on anti-depressants. I am no longer that scared, nervous, timid child that I once was.

    Not Diagnosed

    They haven't ever successfully diagnosed me, but I've heard theories, and in the end they put me on Prozac and a couple of mood stabilizers. These work wonders. I was so much unhappier before the most recent combination of meds. I'm pretty sure there's some depression mixed in...

    I probably should again.I resist it though, because most of my sadness is situational. Whenever I am feeling depressed and I am crying, I can point to a cause.I can say *This is why I am sad* *This is what is happening in my life that I am crying about.*I took antidepressants for...

    I have a question for anyone

    who has taken depression medication; Has it affected your memory or made it difficult to concentrate while on it? I've been having some problems lately and I think that my medication may be the problem. I'd appreciate the help. :)
