Hey everyone. I just got back from my second appointment with my psychologist. I actually read her the post about how I deal with depression on a daily basis. She was blown away. Anyway, I think that opened her eyes and she has decided I need to go on anti-depressants. I'm really scared because I am on so many other medications all ready and I'm think about starting birth control as of next week. I'm just really afraid that being away at school (4 hours away from my regular physician) that I'll have a tough time with symptoms and determining which medication will be best. I've been taking medications since I was a little girl, but I really don't want to add another one, especially with potential side effects. Any advice from those who are one anti-depressants about how I should handle this would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
