Hi Beautymom. I just wanted to give you a word of advice. I am assuming the anti-depressant is for anxiety? I am on Lexapro for anxiety. It has done a world of good for me. I also wanted to stay off of meds for it, but it got to the point where I was unable to handle a day of any amount of stress without completely exausting my energy and personality, hope that makes sense to you. The only reason I made it through planning my wedding is because of the combination of God, Lexapro and my family. I guess I just wanted to say "good luck" at going the natural route, I really hope it works. But also remember that the meds are there if it gets to hard. My husband has major depressive disorder and until I helped encourage him to try anti-depressants he felt suicidal every day. I consider the development of these meds, when not abused, to be something that God gave to the minds of those that developed them.
Always remember that God is there for you!
