I just wanted to welcome you to Healing Well and know there are so many members on this site that I'm sure can relate to what you are going through right now. You've definitely come to the right place and your voice is heard.
Being able to recognize that you were experiencing a depressive episode is a big step, but to do something about it by going to the doctor and being treated for it is an even bigger step...kudos to you!
Please continue to express yourself here as we are all here to listen, vent, offer advice, opinions and answers as best we can.
As for trying to forget what you went through, there are members on this site that are much more experienced with depression and how to control it than I am. I do know, however, that talk therapy is certainly a step in the right direction.
Keep the faith and be strong...
