The insulin comparison is very apt and is one that I've used myself when he has been upset about having to go back on meds. I tell him that I don't think of him as any less of a man because he has to take insulin every day so why should I think it of him for having to take a maintenance level dose of an antidepressant?

    His meds don't stop the dark thoughts and feelings, but they make them easier to deal with, to acknowledge what they are and discard them rather than letting them overwhelm him and if they keep him functioning day to day then I'm fine with that.
    This is exactly my experience with my zoloft. It's not a fix, but a handle I can get ahold of to move things about and sort them out.

    ^Mine too.
    I was very skeptical at first, but zoloft allows me to deal with a lot of stuff I wasn't able to.
    Every difficulty is not the end of the world anymore for me.
