Dear Katherine,
It looks like we are in the same boat. I've decided to put off graduate school for a year until i find a medication that works. Don't give up on trying different medications. I've tried about seven different meds and still no luck. But there are so many out there and so many combinations to try. you should be proud that you are getting through ugrad despite your illness. Have you considered deferring admission to law school? I know what you mean when you say that some academics do not consider depression a legitimate illness. It is so painfull when you have to ask these sort of people for an extension on an assignment or for a t-grade. Your problems seem severe. I think you should focus on getting better instead of worrying about school. Remember that there is still so many types of treatments out there to try.
I know, however, that it is hard to resolve to put school aside. I felt like my life was being pulled apart and that I would never amount to anything worthy. But just think how well you could do if you were not ill. And there is a good chance that you might get better. Please hang in there. And please write in this forum. There are people here who could be of great help.
