I have been diagnosed with depression. My phychiatrist says that I should take an anti depressant. I think that taking medication for depression is very dumb. Medication does not solve depression it just masks it. My friend was on anti depressants and when she didn't take them her depression came back.I will not take anti depressants because I want to get rid of my depression not mask it. What are other ways to get rid of my depression?
