Was Depressed ~18 Years, Recently Defeated It

My overall temperament gradually improved, especially in the past couple of years, but I didn't chemically beat depression until only recently (at 19 years old). It helped that I experienced love for the first time, which made all sorts of nice chemicals swirl around in my brain. ;) Also, I think it helps that I've consistently taken Strattera every day for months now, and it has built up in my system. I never knew I could feel so good - and to think that so many people feel this way all the time, and they take it for granted as a normal part of life! I wake up every day, shocked how good I feel compared to how I once was, even when I'm in a downswing mood-wise!

I'm sorry, but according to your timing you suffered from depression from age 1: I am having trouble invisaging a baby being conscious of being depressed and an adult remembering that.
