Does anyone ever feel like abusing drugs to try to cope with your depression? I'm drug free but it crosses my mind bcuz nothing else helps. I know drugs aren't the answer tho.

I understand where you're coming from. I'm also drug-free (except for prescription meds for my depression and anxiety), and the thought has crossed my mind. I'm sure that's why many people turn to drugs in the first place - to feel better, to cope with whatever their psychological problems are, to numb themselves. I can't do that, though. First, it's illegal. Second, I'm too cheap. Third, it would just make things worse.

All drugs do is mask the symptoms, it doesn't get rid of the underlying cause.

Have you tried any anti-depressants? There are so many out there. I would think that SOMETHING has got to help.
