I second the idea of therapy. How do you know you need meds at all? Maybe it is something that, for example, behavioral therapy could help you with. Were decisions made for you as a child so you never learned how to make them? Or were your parents particularly critical if you made a decision and the result was not favorable? Were you criticized whenever you were not successful or the best at something? I would strongly recommend you seek out therapy to address any such behavioral issues. Meds might help any depression or other resulting emotion, but unless any underlying problem is uncovered and dealt with, meds will only serve to take care of symptoms, not resolve the problem. Personally, I wouldn't want to be on meds for the rest of my life in order to keep compensating for the result of a root cause. Hope this wasn't said too strongly, but I do hope you seek alternatives to meds to explore WHY you have such difficulty making decisions. Of course I'm not ruling out that you might have a condition needing meds, but I would like to see you explore other options.
