I am a 42 year old male diagnosed with severe depression about twenty years ago. I have tried most of the traditional anti-depressant medications and am now on Effexor. After watching the show on thursday july 9th, I'm now wondering if add is not a more accurate diagnosis than depression. I have almost all the symptoms as described by the doctor and my marriage is in a terrible strain because of this. Could this be the lesser of two evils if it were add instead of severe depression?
The Effexor has helped in some small ways, but I am far from having a normal life and qualitiy of life. Furthermore, as I stated earlier, I am making my wife miserable. Does anyone have any thoughts, comments, ideas or stories similiar to mine. I would appreciate any feedback given...thanks so much for reading.
