I was depressed though my teenage years and I am much better now. It took a lot of work, trying different antidepressants, and a lot of counseling. But my depression is now in remission. I think that the med that helped me the most was a mood stabilizer called abilify. It goes good with antidepressants. I take pristiq, but took effexor with success for years. So there is hope.
You will learn to see the glass half full. I always saw it as half enpty too. I figured somebody drank half of it. Was it full at the beginning or empty? That has always been my question. But either way, you will get better.
Coming here is good. You will receive support and others will share experiences with you.
