i tried some prozac out in maybe 1998 or so. i went manic, drank gallons of alcohol and slept around . hell with that. same thing, quit cold turkey, had crazy side effects and gave up. tried lexapro a few years after that. no effect, and then the pill cocktail suggestions started coming on.

i am depressed sometimes, and i am also just fucking sad, anxious and overwhelmed. who isn’t if they have their eyes open?

i can manage on my own, for which i am grateful — sunlight, movement, proper food, herbs…
