I am starting antidepressants this week, at least that is if I can get the courage to do so. What can I expect? Does antidepressants help you think "clearer", and not have all the negative thoughts that I have going on in my head now. Honestly I am just scared, but the only time I feel good is on Mondays, because I take a few pain pills. I know it is WRONG for me to do so, but I have to have at least one day out of the week where I feel okay.
