Just wanted to let those of you who are struggling with depression not to give up...there is hope! And I am living proof. I suffer from very severe depression and have been in the pits of hell. Depression got so bad, I couldn't function; I was incapacitated; paralyzed. It was that bad. Just dreadful...can't even put it into words. Been messing around with meds for over 2 years and finally found a cocktail that's working for me. I still have low days, but nothing compared to that of before. I am now working a full-time job, seeing friends and family and also exercising 4 times a week (trying to lose the weight I gained from the meds). All of these things were foreign to me when severely depressed. I myself can't even believe how far I've come. It's wonderful. So all of you who are battling depression, suffering, struggling - keep pushing forward...you can beat this!
