How true--I resisted taking any medication for my depression/anxiety until I reached a point where I could no longer endure the emotions that emerged during my sessions--the medications, although not perfect by any means, provide a much needed baseline that I can rely on and allow me to continue doing the hard work in therapy that I need to do. For me, therapy contributes at least 70% and the medications only about 30% towards my recovery--but without that 30%, the other
70% wouldn't happen.
