Yes. That just happened.
This doesn’t ring true for everyone, but personally I feel that I am much better off with my medication. It keeps me from becoming suicidal (no scares since July 4th, 2014) and quite frankly it allows me to be the best version of myself.
I don’t have that cloud of heavy depression brain blocking my view of my goals, dreams, and responsibilities. It helps me get out of bed easier in the morning. I don’t jump up and sing by any means, but I don’t have that crushing feeling of wanting to die every morning. Wanting to stay in bed because I’m too afraid to face the world.
Now when I say I like my Depression how I like my sex I mean I’d rather not risk something happening because I decided not to be safe.
Not a perfect metaphor because for sex it’s a new life, and for Depression it’s… Death, but you catch my drift.
Why risk not taking medication when you know it gives you a better chance at life?
This is of course only if you’re someone that is taking medication and is successful on it.
