I was diagnosed with clinical depression when I was 38. My physician prescribed 20 mg/day of Paxil and it does help. But when Life's issues drag me down I still struggle.
I've been going through a depressive episode the last year and 4 months-since my Mom and brother died a few days apart (unrelated issues). I just can't seem to shake out of it.
Seems like many years since I really felt joy in life. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever really know it again. There has to be more to life than constant feelings of anxiety and depression.
I recognize we'll have tragedies and disappointment in life, but I just want to have a frame of mind that doesn't dwell on the darkness or worry about what may happen tomorrow. Being able to see some sunlight through the clouds once in awhile shouldn't be asking for too much, should it?
