I worked in the mental health field for lots of years with depression and anxiety/panic disorder and fought everyday not to become "one of my clients". Was actually terrified that I would wake up go to work and be compared to them, even though the people I worked with had Schizophrenia, Bipolar and similar disorders. Its funny how none of my co-workers paid any attention to my idiosyncrasies.
I take medication for my depression and also the anxiety when I need to. I look at it the same way as I do the medication I take for my Multiple Sclerosis and my heart meds, blood pressure meds. Without it I wouldn’t function and possibly be alive.
