> Yes, Fighting depression without the aid of chemicals in a "Brave new World" will not be that fun. Doing so means we are simply losing our illusions which we hardly wish to. Our living environment makes us weak,vulnerable and quite deceptively we mask our debility by naming them as depression, generalized anxiety disorder....We have gone so far almost to the point that there is no return.

Illusions? Illusions of what? Masking what debility? I don't understand you,

If we can endure what drugs inflict upon us as loss of efficacy and ultimately relentless sufferings why can't we just try a drug free period to educate our brain to cope with what we call depression, anxiety, panic...?

Have entered drug-free period. Want to kill myself. What's your advice?

> Depression is a self limiting disease. If untreated it will resolve in six to nine months. Antidepressants can shorten this period and psychotherapy is equally effective. This is what I read as a basic theory of depression. How many of us have bothered with these basics?

Don't believe everything you read.
