That's wonderful to hear. Your experience shows that really effective therapy can change one's brain chemistry back towards normal without the addition of medication. I do think there is an important role for medications, but my experience is very similiar to yours: they helped very little, while the experience of therapy was truly life- changing. I do think there are depressions where interpersonal stresses play a relatively small role, and neurobiology a much bigger one. For those, finding the very best medication is essential ( and better ones are urgently needed).
It's so good to hear your story.
