> One thing at a time. Deal with the depression, first. How are you doing on that front ?

Depression is controlled on meds. Off meds, it can be very severe .... very dark.

>I think once that is under control, it will be clear to you how to deal with marriage and kids.

I guess the question is .... is it fair to my significant other to take a vow of marriage .... when I can't promise her I will be healthy in five years .... I seen people spiral down with this disease. I'm just a little scared and a little too realist.

It seems that we are not closer to solving this depression disease than we were 20 years ago.
One could argue some of our most effective medication have been around for over 30 years-the tca's, MAOI, lithium. Yeah, the newer meds have less "side effects" but are no more effective ... probably less effective than the older meds.

PS I know people are going to slaughter me for those statement ... sorry in advance.
