I have had depression for 26 years and have been on a med, during that time I had one relapse that put me off work for about 2 weeks but with medication adjustment and therapy I got back on track.
In November of 2005 I had a major meltdown and ended up taking early retirement as I was absolutely not able to function. Since that time, I have been up and down and on many different meds looking for the right combo.
I have also had a lot of life changes in my life that were stressful so I have to say some of the depression was triggered by that.
I hid my depression for years but in 2005 I gave up hiding and let people know the truth.................now they say things like it is probably change of life............giggle. I am a bit old for it to be that.
