Hi everyone, I wanted to start a new thread about an issue that I personally am dealing with and hope to recover from. Back in November 2012 when pregnant with my daughter I began suffering from severe depression and my OBGYN at the time put me on an SSRI (Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor). Since then, my depression has gotten better but I still suffer from anxiety that has only gotten marginally better. Fast forward to 2018 and I have been on this medication for almost six years. Do not turn this into a debate about medication. Do not come in here and tell me to change and "to work harder." I can tell you with a 100% certainty that I do not like being depressed - so don't treat me like I do. When I was introduced to the Whole30 I immediately jumped in and set goals for myself. One of these goals was to once and for all get myself into a better space physically and mentally to begin weaning myself from this medication. My post is meant as a safe space for those of us suffering from moderate to severe depression if you need a place to communicate with those of us who can relate to your situation. No one said this was going to be easy and, speaking for myself, I am here for you. Whoever you are. - Tori
