Have any of u noticed that even with all the information we have today about depression being an actual disease that people still don't understand and expect us to just "get ove it"? My husband is just one example. He doesn't want me to go to counseling or take anti-depressants. I was on anti-depressants awhile back (not because my husbans agreed to it, but because I happened to be going through a real bad bout of depression one day while I was at the doctor for something else and started crying while the nurse was asking me question. She was very kind and loving toward me and told me that I don't have to keep feeling like that ; there were medications I could take and asked if I would like that; I told her yes and she told the doctor to prescribe one for me.) After I'd been taking it a few months, I guess it was costing too much even with the insurance so my husband told me to stop taking it. I figured, it wasn't working anyway, so I did. I've had people tell me I need to go back to the doctor and see if I can get him to prescribe me another kind, until we get something that works for me, but my husband doesn't want me to. He doesn't want me to go to counseling either. He's one of those who think I should just be able to get over it. I'm not just picking on him thought. I was using him as an example. There are still a lot of people these days who don't understand. I would think that with all the information available these days about depression, people would be more understanding about it.
