Depression is such an ever present part of my life. I wish it wasn't and I'll probably never get used to the ups and downs that come with it. As you may know I've spent the past two years taking anti-depressants, triggered by a really low point while I was studying at university. The pills were a blessing during a time in need and made me balanced and... normal. Of course there were days where I wasn't balanced in the slightest but the majority of the time it just made life feel a heck of a lot easier.
While I think the pills helped me I want to stress that I tried so many things before I resorted to taking anti-depressants and I think pills should be seen as a last resort. I even turned them down the first time the doctor recommended them to me because I wanted to look for other methods of support. But, in the end, it was affecting my ability to look after Orlaith too much so I took the decision to try them out.
