We're all success stories! Because we're hanging in there, working to find the right combo of meds, therapy, lifestyle, etc. that works for us. As for recovery, if you mean "it goes away completely and never comes back," probably not. It looks to me like biologically-based depression, etc. are permanent problems for a lot of us. But if you mean finding a treatment that puts depression in the same category as diabetes or high blood pressure, a problem that can be treated so that it creates minimal or no interference with life, that can be achieved. I'm not fully there yet. I'm still tinkering with meds to find the right combo that works well enough without causing side effects), but I'm a LOT better than I was two years ago--I mean, a huge difference!
