I don't really think that there are many who want to "pop a pill" and move on. There are many who don't want to take medication and actually need to. I for instance, have a chemical embalance and need medication where there are some who have situational medication. I am sure there are a few, as you suggested, though that don't want to work through it and hope medication will take it away. Nobody wants to be depressed
If you have had a lot of counselors
telling you to seek doctor's help, maybe you should. Taking medication doesn't necessarily make you a zombie. If it does, you are on the wrong medication.
Speaking of wine
, alcohol makes you more depressed, so if you are drinking, that could be the source of your depression
. I only said that because of the way that you mentioned it.
Exercise and eating right can help with depression. There are also supplements
that can help. But if you are being told you may need medication and you are actually depressed, I would take it into consideration. But realistically, your comment about
popping a pill, I don't see it. Not on a large scale.
I hope that you feel better soon.
