  1. I've worried about anti-depressants blunting my emotions but I sobbed like a baby a few days ago when one of our cats died suddenly and unexpectedly. Since I have bi-polar and not just depression, I'm pretty much resigned to being on some kind of mood stabilizers for life.

  3. Barb,
    I have had an anxiety disorder since I was a child. It was not a fun thing and there were no drugs for me until I became an adult. I am not just "resigned" to knowing that there will be medication in my life, I consider it a gift. It reminds me of objective justification and allows me to handle life like I don't have anything going on. Medication isn't a bad thing when you need it, just as it isn't a bad thing for the diabetic. Besides, attitude towards medication can also help you because you stop thinking about the fact that you have to take medication to feel better and just enjoy feeling better.
