Fantastic piece describing the battle of depression and the struggle to find a baseline without it. Great insight balancing the nature versus nurture aspect of depression = your genetics versus external factors (i.e., a mom that yells a lot,) and how both impact your mental health. Good overview of medications and the challenge in finding the “right mix.” Your writing is profound, thorough, and authentic. Please let me know if I can link this to my blog. Keep writing, I look forward to it.
