I've been battling depression and general anxiety since I can remember. Today I started my first course of antidepressant medication (I call them psycho meds cos I think it's funny). The decision to do so was a hard one. Throughout my counselling I was adamant that I was going to get through this without medication, that the root of my issues was spiritual imbalance, that the power was all within me. However, I just want to SEE if my quality of my inner world could do with a chemical pick-me-up. I certainly don't want to feel like I've failed myself, but of course I'm a little disappointed that I didn't get there without. Gosh dang this human experience is a tricky one. Here's to the upward spiral.
