I know anti-depressants save lives, and make people functional, they should exist, and they should be used when needed.
My story may help. Six years ago, I couldn't stop crying, there were a lot of real life reasons for that, but I went for help. After a meeting and a checklist I left with a prescription for Prozac. I was walking down the street (crying, because that's what I did then), and I noticed that there was new "Contours" opening right by my office. (Contours is a generic version of Curves), I walked in and signed up. I'm not sure why, I'm not sure who was holding my hand and pulling out the credit card, but I thought - "let's try this before the Prozac". I never filled the prescription. This isn't to say its not right for some people, but for me, taking this specific step of discipline led to many other steps, and 50 pounds later, I haven't cried in months.
I wish you well on your journey, and will be happy to cheer for you, as long as I don't have to climb up a pyramid!
