So I have until Friday to decide if I want to go on antidepressants and I don't know if I should go on it or not. I have been on them before but that was a few years ago now. I don't know if I should go back on them...

Did they help, the last time you took them?

Though even if they didn't, they might try you on something new this time.

I've never been on them so can't really advise.

I hope you make a decision that's right for you, and that you feel better soon whatever you decide. xx

It isn't with the doctors it is at Mental health, she said she will give me a ring on Friday to see if I have chosen what I want to do.

At the beginning it made me very suicidal and I don't think it worked so if I decide to go on them I'll ask for different ones and thank you :)
