  1. Hi, I've been wondering if Meds help and if I should take them for my Depression, anger and anxiety. I've always wanted Meds but I'm too afraid to tell my mom how angry and depressed I've felt mixed with anxiety.

    I felt the same way a year ago. I left my parents a note asking for professional help and meds. When I got them, they repulsed me. They made me angry at myself. I felt so weak, so useless that I was living off medication. So I broke it off.
    Personally I would just stick to therapy or fight for yourself unless it gets real bad. But that's just me. I think everyone has to make that decision for themself.

    meds for depression are not as simple as antibiotics for an infection - they require a good combination of a therapist and a doctor (or a good psychiatrist), time (measured in weeks), trial-and-error, and adjustments over time

    side effects, both emotional and physical, can vary

    there may be a good combination out there for you but you have to search to find it, stick with it once you do, and honestly discuss the results with your therapist

    I have not had good results with meds either, but i know may people who do

    if you've only just started or have not started at all, it would definitely be worth investigating
