Ron, I can understand how you feel about people not being able so called to "snap out of it". But from experience I too have said that too myself many times. For years I thought I had the depression under control until something traumatic happened while I was in the Army and it all came out with a tremendous blow. For years I fought not being on medication and was ultimately given a medical discharge for my illness. Even after being discharged I thought that I could control the illness and did everything under the sun but to be slapped down again and again. Finally I have come to the conclusion that the meds that I am finally on have made me a whole person once again. I see brightness in my life and finally can laugh and see a future in my life whereas before I saw nothing but hurrying up to die as fast as possible. There is no reason as to my illness but my brain was not functioning like other so called "normal" people. I was not raised in a bad home or raped or molested. By the way, I have 2 uncles and 1 aunt that killed themselves and wish that they would have had the availability for meds. My sister and brother suffers from depression and we are all on medication. The illness can be genetic as well. Please try to understand that no one wishes to be on medication and if there were any other way we would have jumped on it. Sometimes I resent taking medication but I am alive and doing well so I take them everyday.
