      That’s an important conversation to have with your doctor/psycho (with your parents present as well if you are a minor) to talk through all your symptoms and the options. We are here to support you but most of us aren’t professionals lol!! I personally would recommend medication but this is in my experience, I’ve talked to people on here who had horrible experiences with meds and avoid them at all costs. Having a conversation with your health professionals is the best direction to go in.

      no answer is the right answer. the best way to figure that out is to have an honest conversation with your doctor/psychologist/psychiatrist about your symptoms and how well you can handle your depression on a daily basis. medication can help but it's also just a cast on a bigger problem. if you can heal without one, all the better for you. but if you need that cast, you need that cast.
