Yep. Absolutely right.
I took Lexapro for years, but it stopped working for me and I got more depressed than I’ve ever been in my life. Now I’m on Cymbalta instead and so my meds are back to working really well.
I need medication. I’ve been depressed my whole life otherwise. I’m not worried about what people think. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Though I will say there is a lot of blatant workplace discrimination against people with mental illness.
My dad died at 51. With the amount of meds I’m on I hope I can make it a little longer than that.
Thank you for fighting for us.
