Medications have always helped me. There has been a remarkable change for the good with my depression since I have been on medication. But I think that still we always could use some counseling to go with it.
I think that even if you have been in NA or AA, you can still take medications for depression. There is generally a chemical imbalance going on and that needs to be corrected. Most antidepressants cannot be abused, there is just no rhyme or reason for it.
I think I can see where you are going with all these questions. I think that you are wondering about
your boyfriend getting better. Well, it takes time and there are no pat answers to this because everybody is different. I hope that he gets well soon and that you two can work things out. But he needs to get better on his terms and you need to be patient. I am glad that you are getting information on depression though and we will help you as much as we can.
