I am so glad to see this thread up. I have been on anti-depressants for 10 years now. In my family it is genetic, my mother, grand-mother, great-grand-mother, aunts and second cousins all suffer either from depression or Bipolar DIsorder. I have to take ANti-depressants. WHen I try to wean my self off of them, I get very suicidal, have no energy and lose my faith. I have been worried about the effects it might have on my new little baby I'm growing inside, but if I don't take the meds, I try to take my life. Better to be a medicated live mother than dead unmedicated mother. I am glad y'all have had such positive experiences. Sorry for rambling.
Before you were conceived, I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were a minute old, I would have died for you. That is the miracle of life. ~Maureen Hawkins~
