it is my partner who has depression not me I have never had it so honestly don't understand it. I have read about it and luckily my boyfriend doesn't seem to have it too bad. From the start he's been keen to avoid using antidepressants which I've never been one for relying on medication if you can help it. Out of interest to see what is possible in future if his depression got much worse I read up about antidepressants and I have never read about something and been so much in favour of my original thoughts before. Before I read I thought probably is best to avoid them if you can but not that bad if you can't. After reading the side effects they seriously sound like they would only be worth taking if the only 2 options was go on them or kill yourself. Like I say I have no idea what depression is like and never til now known anyone with it so maybe they do help more than it sounds and from reading it sounds like they make things worse then better so if that's the case for severe depression it may be worth it. I am planning on at some point when I'm on about depression with my boyfriend to just point out how right he is to try to avoid antidepressants as most of side effects would change what he does in day and one is struggle sleeping which he already has trouble with.
