Welcome to Healing Well. I think that it is good that you came here. I have to say though by reading your post, it really sounds like you need the medications. It sounds like you were doing better with than without. No mood swings or irritablilty.
Taking meds is something we all wish that we didn't have to do. But we seem to need them. The same with therapy, though I enjoy going to mine, I always feel better afterwards.
Don't feel bad that you need medication and therapy, I think a lot of us do. And it is nothing to feel bad or embarrassed about
. Depression is a disease and we can't help it if we are suffering from it.
I hope that this helps you some and I hope that you feel better and keep posting. There are a ton of wonderful members here with a lot of kindness and compassion.
