sour-mango asked: (In response to anon) I ask my doctor lots of questions but she never seems to have time to deal with me. I'm in treatment for depression and every time I go and see her she snaps "Aren't you feeling better yet?!" Discussions about side effects are just her confirming it's all the pills. The internet allows me to get peer support which I consider vital for me as it can prove to me that I'm not the only one. Though a different kind of advice in many ways I find it more useful.
BAM! There it is.
When I was in the middle of one of my first really bad depressive episodes I spent about 90% of my time looking at my peers and wondering if they’d ever felt like me. Sometimes the worst thing about mental illness can be the loneliness, and hearing that others have been through what you’re going through and come out the other side can give you the strength to push through.
