I was diagnosed 3 years ago. [Depression] impacts every aspect of my daily life and prevents me from normal functioning. I have been taking Fluoxetine 60mg, which helps some but not always enough. [The worst was] I told my boss I was taking meds for my depression and I got fired. Now I'm really depressed! It's important to find a support person that you can always talk to, create a crisis plan for safety, and never ever give up!
