Seriously i would like to get some opinions. I have battled my depression for many years off and on and i've never been shy about it. I did great for a long time and now i guess you could say i'm having a relapse, a bad one, and i've been incredibly honest with everyone about it and i feel like they don't take me seriously. How can i get through to them that i am truly suffering. They see me as so strong that i think they feel that i pulled out of it before that i'll do it again. Even my husband doesn't get it. The other night i got brave and took the high road and poured out a bottle of Vodka because i was so depressed i would have drank the whole thing and i had to go to that extreme at that moment and when i decided to be honest wih him, he looked at me like i was being over dramatic. I am not attention person in the least, and they all know that, so what gives? Do they all live in la la land instead of reality? Do i remind them to much of maybe what their not willing to face themselves? I can't talk to a pro. so now what?

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
