I just got diagnosed with depression recently, but I've been suffering from it for over 4 years now. I'm currently in University and it's really started to affect my grades and that's when I went to a psychologist and he diagnosed me with it. I'm sick of being sad all the time and it's taking a toll on more then my school work. It's ruining my relationship with my boyfriend b/c I keep trying to pick fights with him over really stupid stuff. But, he's super supportive and is sticking by me no matter what. I don't want to hurt other people, but it seems that I have to pick at things to push them so far, to show that they love me. I don't know. I guess this is all stuff that'll have to be worked out in therapy. But, I have a few questions, if anyone knows the answers?
- can the birth control pill affect your depression
- my doctor has recommended that I be treated with both therapy and drugs (i don't remember the drug), but do they really work?
