    I'm doing much better doctor adjusted my meds and put me back on ativan, feeling pretty mellow and euophoric since i've been on it depression is pretty much gone at the moment feeling optimistic about my future, usually this optimism doesnt last to long its an everyday struggle but i just keep telling myself NEVER GIVE UP. I know the lord granted me this illness for a purpose and you should all feel the same way, pick yourself up and move on

    It's good to hear some positivity, I agree we should never give up and keep moving forward... I'm glad your depression is pretty much gone and that you're feeling optimistic... Whatever you're doing, you're doing it right if you're feeling good so keep it up. And it's good that you have your mom monitering how much you take, my fiance moniters my meds. It helps alot.
