Do you ever wonder if there are groups that are more depressed than others? I mean not just a little down, but on some sort of antidepressant to help them through it. I have quite a few teacher colleagues who I know are on antidepressants. My sister went on one after her wedding was cancelled and the jerk did all the crap he did to her.
It seems, from what I've read here over the past 12 years that single women are probably among the more depressed. I'm sure there are plenty of married women who are as well, and I'm sure there are plenty of single women who are incredibly happy. But it seems to me that in general, we're depressed. Or maybe it's just women who are depressed! I don't know.
I decided yesterday to start taking something to see if it improves my mood. I was pretty happy this summer, but since school has started up again, I just haven't been happy. To be honest, nothing seems to make me happy and I'm not motivated to do much. I didn't want to take anything prescription because of the side effects I've read of, so I decided to try a supplement (SAM-e) after doing a lot of research. I took it this morning and I felt like crap all day long. I don't think one day is supposed to affect me, though, so I think it was something else going on. Hopefully I'll see a difference within a week like the package says.
I'm just kind of curious of anyone else is taking anything or tried the supplement I am taking. I can't really talk about it with my real-life friends because I can't really trust any of them to keep it to themselves.
