Around 40, life took some hard turns and depression set in. Medication no longer seemed to help, though it had for the previous 10 years. A handful of my 40-something friends who also struggled with depression seemed to go off the rails. At 46 now, I've tried many medications including herbal with little help. Now I'm just trying to make the best choices and keep my head above the waters of negativity. I'm committed to living and giving my kids the best life I can. I would like to connect with others who understand. Those who are fighting this fight and doing what they can to persevere and stay strong.
Don't you hate the way depression robs joy, and makes you feel like a failure?
