    I'm still on 150mg bupropion (Wellbutrin), but it's such a low dose and I've come so far with my coping skills that I'm not sure how much it's helping. I also take 25mg CBD oil twice daily and supplement with vitamin D drops.

    I can't say I'm "cured" or that there is even a cure for the pain and trauma that life inflicts upon us (that is after all the nature of scars, which we all bear to some extent), but the surface has healed enough so that I don't have to walk around hiding behind bandages worrying that the wound will seep through the edges.

    Also, I'd like to add that I think that some antidepressants work by numbing the ability to feel, which may be initially beneficial in a crisis, but after some time, if you are noticing a distinct inability to feel, I would consider a change in some direction as far as treatment goes.

    The main reason I am giving antidepressants a go to begin with, is because I have tried everything else. I got tired of putting up with it alone.

    Now if only my therapy wasn't so awkward. I keep spacing what I want to say lol.

    My answer should change from "no, but used to" to "yes" but there's no way for me to change it.

    When I was 15 they put me on antidepressants. My father convinced me I didn't need them and it was just a matter of circumstance and willpower, so I came off of them. A few years later I got fired from my job for depression issues. Some years after that I learned I was bipolar all this time. I had tried to fight it all on my own for years, but nothing I did ever worked. Eventually I accepted the fact that my father was wrong and I needed help.
