Could I have come out of depression on my own?

Posted by JaredD on November 17, 2000, at 2:14:08

As most people know ADD and depression often go hand in hand. I'm ADD primarily inattentive type and have always sort of been depressed and very sensitive to rejection all my life. I was very depressed in high school, but when I got to college I gradually become more confident and less depressed. As a fifth year student now, I feel like I'm sort of at a plateua as far as the depression goes. Meaning I feel good when things are going good, but I still get that old familiar feeling of depression (once every two weeks or so). Where the next couple of days turn in to me blowing things off and not wanting to do things, over analyzing everything, hiding behind an obsession of some sort to occupy my time so I don't have to deal with my everyday responsibilities.
I guess what I'm trying to get at is could I have generally come out of the insecure, low motivation world I once lived in?
I know this is the medication page, which brings me to another important question I've been asking myself. Shoud I consider wellbutrin for ADD? I'm on adderall right now, but my heart reacts badly to it and skips beats sometimes (earlier post). I only do about 2.5 mgs every 3 hours which is barely helpful but at least it doesn't affect my heart.
I feel like I've come a long way in dealing with my insecurities and I don't want to backtrack at all by getting into the AD's. I don't know. I do know that I need to address my problem of indecisiveness.
Does anyone know what causes indecisiveness and what medications could help it? How can I not know what I like and dislike (often a problem with me).
Ok, I think I've overloaded my post with questions. I'll stop now, but I'd love it if anyone could get back to me on some opinions or suggestions.
Thanks for listening,
