My name is Margaret. I am married with two small children. I have been a lifelong sufferer from depression and I am hoping to find ways other than medications to control depression. I'm looking into learning more about exercise and diet. I am also trying to become a more spiritual person and I'm trying to make more friends. Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Welcome! I do not post here as often as I would like to because of work taking up sooo much time - but I am on bedrest until our baby is born so I can catch up!
I can not tell you how many times I have convinced myself that I can control and thrive and coexist with my depression without medication.
I am positive it can work for some people, but it can not for me. In fact, I have stayed on my antidepressant (150 mg of Effexor XR) throughout this entire pregnancy. My bedrest complications (high blood pressure) are unrelated to the medication.
Depression is very difficult to handle. When I am trying to deal w/ it without medication I find that while I am able to survive - it's just that. I'm in survival mode and not living.
Many thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy.
