Well Ive already told you what i think of you.
However you are completely uneducated and in a cult. Your comments regarding antidepressants and people who suffer with mental health issues are evidence of your ignorance.
But the best thing I can say is that I am a nurse.
If you have a problem - the best thing you can do is go and get professional help. If you have depression (its sounds at the very least you may do) and you leave it undiagnosed and treated - effectively...not just treated but the treatment must be effective this can spiral out of control and you can end up with MAJOR MAJOR mental health problems and admitted to a psych unit.
That is the extreme..but is true.
So put aside your prejudice on antidepressants...they are absolute shit
Go see a psychiatrist. You need to find a good one, one that you feel you can be completely open with and they can understand you. The psychiatrist needs to understand about cults to have an understanding of how you are suffering and how this is your life...
Then if the psychiatrist orders antidepressants ask questions about side effects. Not all antidepressants cause weight gain. If depression is untreated you may even loose your sex drive...so you should get treated...
then after being on the tablets for a while you will be having regular visits to the doctor and he will monitor your progress....if they are not working or make you feel worse, he will change them to another. With antidepressants its a trial and error thing till they get the right fix.
Now I say go to a psychiatrist - WHY? well GPs are not specialists in mental health things and medications. You need a good specialist.. because they will know what doses they can go up to and what combinations of drugs to trial...that is their job...they do it day in day out...this way you will have the best chance at getting well
you would be on them for about 6-12 months of being well then the psychiatrist may start to think about weaning them off. and that will be done slowly.
The biggest mistake you can do is compare your symptoms to another....because you don't know the complete diagnosis of the other person - that is why they could not get out of bed etc
everyone is different and requires assessment
and taking antidepressants doesnt mean you are screwed up....complete ignorance once again....depression is a chemical imbalance that needs to be treated...not that the person is a screw up...you know you are very insulting to people...
you need to get out of that cult and get a bloody education and understand people and the world around you
