So, you're me; you're depressed, you're overwhelmed, you kinda want to eat a bullet. You have two options; one, you can take some medication that yes, does allow you to function and mostly stay out of the ruts, but it also kills your libido and generally dulls your emotions and renders you foggy. The alternative, of course, is that you take nothing and remain lucid, yet miserable, and know full well that you'll likely never get any better.
(I suppose it should be said that the libido part isn't much of a consideration seeing as how I'm painfully single and have been for some time.)
I'm torn. Apathy is self-destruction for the unambitious, it seems. :-S
