I’ve got an appointment to see my doctor this week and I’m going to ask him about starting some kind of medication. I can’t keep feeling this way. I’ve been chronically anxious and depressed for months now and I’m tired of suffering. I’m planning on seeing a counselor too when I start back at school but therapy alone for the past few months hasn’t been fully enough.

I just really need some beacon of hope, GT. if you've had success with medication, please tell me about it?
