Why I’m Anti-Antidepressants

Healing from depression is a long, slow process. My depression was the result of trauma (a subject I’m saving for another post as I am not yet ready to share it), so when I sought help in December I knew I needed a therapist to help me work through what happened to me. We agreed in our first session to see what we could do with therapy alone, and leave antidepressants as a discussion down the road if things did not improve.
