Hello - I think I'm really just looking for support right now. I've had fairly bad depression and anxiety since I was 15 (mainly due to C-PTSD and other family of origin issues). My doctor and I finally found the magic med cocktail that killed the depression and maybe 2/3 of the anxiety last year when I was 41. That's when I got a bit of clarity and pretty much went into a state of shock when I realized that all those years were gone and what could have been. I've been trying my best to rebuild things (everything from minimizing medications that were causing problems to therapists to alternative treatments - I'm throwing everything I've got at it). Things are very slowly getting better but I don't know if it will really matter. I didn't sign up to be some kind of posterboy for picking up scraps and trying to build a life at middle-age. If anyone has had or is dealing with a long-term complicated depression issue I would really love to hear from you.

I'm 42 and have been dealing with severe depression and anxiety my entire life. Medications were barely scratching the surface.... A doctor told me about Ketamine infusions for depression and I can honestly say that the depression GONE!! I am a new person, back in school, maybe even medical school....I can do anything I want!
Just a question....if your medication is working, why change things? I know it sucks taking medication but if your happy then isn't that all that matters? I tried getting off my medication (before the ketamine Infusions) AND IT WAS A HUGE MISTAKE!!! I'm not telling you to stay on them...if you think you can do good without them, then more power to ya. Just be careful and do it slow.
