I am a 48 year old man, who spent my life believing depression and anti-depressant medication were crutches for the weak or people who lacked conviction. I had a mental breakdown at work a year ago and have not been the same since. After attempting suicide and almost losing my family, I gave in and am being helped with therapy and medication. My doctors are the literally saving my life. I may never be the same again, but I want to live now.
