treatment

I know it's very frustrating when nothing seems to help - age 17-29 i tried about 7 diff meds but finally last year my psych tried a combination of venlafaxine/quetiepine and using light-box & CBT/CAT has helped.

Have everything to live for on the surface too but depression can happen to anyone - regardless of circumstances...if you can get 'Depressive illness:Curse of the strong by Dr Tim Cantopher (he trained with my psych) it helps explain depression and treatment really well...

Thanks

Thanks for the replies. Depression can only be understood by those who have been there.
