Ever think “I can get through this with prayer or willpower”? I know I thought so too. But while very helpful, they are not enough. Having a mental illness is a physiological condition that needs treatment. It requires medicine, in addition to other forms of treatment to address it. In my book , Me? Depressed?: A Story of Depression from Denial to Discovery (2013) I offer “The 7 P’s of Medication”. As you heal, some more than others may take precedence or may even be eliminated altogether. But together, they all play a significant role in healing.
There is always hope!
