Anti depressants have never worked for me. I suffer winter depression which goes on when weather is bad but its England so suffer a bit. In fact prozac made me feel speeded up but depressed. I can't think of any happy events. Memory blocked out but exercise is best thing if you are positive enough to do it.Someone said if you act confident it changes chemicals in the brain. I'd like to try mindfulness but does it really work?
