Campbell from Seattle says:

"For years I struggled with depression. My efforts to control it involved everything except medicaiton. I believed I could cure it myself. I worked hard and honestly in therapy... After many more years, I was still depressed. The same therapist convinced me to give anti-depressants a try. The medication worked beautifully... I am a huge proponent of therapy, but medication absolutely has a place in treatment."
