Easier Than I Thought
I was diagnosed with chronic depression. I was depressed about everything and I was depressed about nothing. They put me on an SSRI called Lexapro, which at first seemed like a miracle drug. But after two months it put me in a constant haze where everything seemed like a dream. It numbed out the bad but also the good. I stopped dreading the things I hated but I lost the passion for the things I loved. Against my doctor's recomendation, I stopped cold turkey. Month more of therapy I was feeling great. I finally was able to just be myself and for the first time in years I had a lot of self confidence!
I still see my therapist, and still have some leftover anxiety that I'm also recovering well from, but my depression is gone. Without pills I'm feeling the best I have in years. (and no this is not a manic phase lol, i am not bipolar.)
