basically the past few years i have been in a pretty bad depression. lately its gotten worse as i am beginning to resent myself and everyone around me. i feel like i need help from someone and i'm not sure who to turn to. arguement for psychologist- i feel like more than anything i need to talk to someone, there has never been anyone in my life who i felt comfortable with expressing my true emotions and feelings. being that my family has a history of depression on both sides, i was tempted to see a psychiatrist, get medication and be done with it. but i also believe things like this can't be solved by taking a pill. arguement for psychiatrist- on the other hand, earlier this year i went to the doctor and got a prescription for adderall. i used it everyday for a few months, and then just stopped taking it. i rarely use it now; i feel like adderall helped me learn how to really focus on a certain task. i was thinking maybe i could do the same thing with different meds, teach myself how to be upbeat and happy and wane myself off the meds. does anyone share my feelings or have advice?
