> Thanks for your story. I think I would benefit from meds but don't know how to ask. I keep hoping one of my doctors (gynochologist, for instance) will recognize my depression and offer to proscribe an anti-depressant. Any advice? Should I just ask? My therapist is a MSW

Naiad,

Ask! And if your therapist disagrees, ask who she/he thinks would benefit from meds. If your therapist is one of those that believes almost no one should take meds then go ask someone else. If the answer is that meds are OK but not for you, see if the reasons make sense to you. If not, ask someone else. You can wait an awful long time for someone else to raise the issue. I'm the opposite. I delayed a long time on asking about therapy. I'd have been much better off if I'd done it sooner.

Jane
