Is it possible to have a case of moderate depression that medications will not help? I ask this because I know I am moderately depressed. I also realize it's not due to a chemical imbalance but rather to my life-situations. It basically stems from loosing my religion. I clung to my beliefs as one would a personal floatation device. Now, as my beliefs fade, so does my hope that my situtations can change. It's because, even when I did have hope that they'd change, they never really did. I'm loosing most of the things I treasure, and my life no longer seems important. What's the use? What is there to hope for now? The funny thing is, tommorrow I'll probably feel better, because over all these years I have learned how to cope... you see, I just don't think about my problems. But, we all know thats foolish 'cuz they're still there picking at the back of my brain. sheesh.
