Yes, in reply to 49er. You are posting on a site populated by people treating their depression, much of it severe, therefore requiring medication(s). Fresh air and exercise will not cut for this obstinate minority with endogenous, lifelong depression, many of whom can only dream of a life without taking pills every day and managing their side effects.
Need i remind you that depression causes brain atrophy (cell death) and shrinking of the hippocampus, IT alone is the baddie, not the drugs which work by reversing this damage and producing nerve cell regeneration. Which would you prefer? My own life has been spared because of them.
I suggest you take your line back to prozactruth or from wheresoever it came because something tells me you are preaching more harm than good on a board like this.
