It really is, it's fiendish, really rips you up from the inside. I'm lucky enough to have it run in my family :|
I'm not just saying this for the sake of hyperbole, but I feel pretty close to how I felt last year right before I tried to commit suicide. Thankfully i'm a lot smarter and have a bigger network to help me out nowadays, getting my ass to the doctor pronto.
It's just once you get into a rut it's so hard to dig yourself back up out of it. I really thought I had a good routine going, and I was feeling a lot better, and I was proud of myself for not having to rely on pills, but I really need to tell myself that there nothing naturally I can do to fix the chemical imbalance in my head, and it's not a sign of weakness to revert to medicine.
