This is great Jonathan. I know so little about depression. I remember when my son was just a baby and I left his father I was frozen. My doctor said I had depression and gave me pills. That lasted about 4 months. I hated them. I didn’t need medication, I needed to grow up and figure out my life.

I think doctors are too quick to hand out pills to so many people who, in fact, aren’t really depressed, they’re just sad. Now I’m not taking away from those who truly need medication. I just think many don’t need it. #mytwocents.
