My therapist has recommended that I consider medication for treatment of what she believes is depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I'm not sure what to do with her recommendation.
I am fundamentally against taking prescription medication unless it is absolutely necessary, and I don't know how necessary it might be for myself. However, I don't want to be selfish; I don't want to refuse to try something that could make me a better parent and a better wife.
My therapist says that she believes the medication could "heal" my brain, but I really don't know if it's damaged since I can't see it. She also believes it could help prevent another major suicidal episode for me. The problem with that is that, if I am truthful, I actually want to commit suicide. I don't see any major problem with that; it sounds pleasant and inviting. The only reason I haven't done it is because I don't want to f*ck up my son by abandoning him. Anyway, I'm not sure I have a question; I'm just throwing this out there to see what folks might say.
