My therapist is recommending I begin an anti-depressant. I am usually against anything chemical/pharmacalogical. However, I feel bad enough that a pill a day sounds fantastic.
Before I go down that path, are there any natural alternatives I should explore? Let me begin with: I am a single mother of two young children, ages 2 and 5.5. I have a full-time job. I have some help with my children but getting more is a struggle. I know I need to sleep more, eat better, exercise and make time for myself. At this point, my depression keeps me from doing those things. If you can suggest an alternative that can take the edge off so I can return to a healthier lifestyle, I am all ears.
Thank you in advance!
