Is it possible to be cured or nearly cured of ones depression? I would assume some people may always have to battle it but is it possible that if one has suffered with depression for a good portion of their life to someday be totally free of it? The reason I pose this question is that I have battled anxiety and depression all my life and I finally have the upperhand on both of these illnesses. Partly because I"m guessing my Lexapro, which I have taken for about 8 months now, maybe finall kicking in. But also partly because I have worked so hard on the mental part of it and I have to say I have had 6 pretty good days in a row where I have felt pretty good and about as close to happy as I have been in a long long time. I of course am cautiously and guardedly optimistic about this war I have taken up with the anxiety and depression but I'm was just curious if someday I or anyone else can be totally cured of their depression and/or anxiety someday.
