Do you need antidepressants?

So, how are you feeling?

I’m talking about how you’re feeling emotionally. Are you having days when you just don’t feel like you have the resources to cope with what it takes to live with your diagnosis? Feeling a little depressed, or a lot depressed? Anxious? Or have you had days like this in the past?

Somewhere along the way, you may have had thought about medication to help you to cope emotionally. Or your doctor has brought up that possibility with you. Especially if those feelings have been persisting over time.
