Hi! it's been a long time since I posted a thread here. In the last few months, i've been dealing with what i think is depression. It's not really very severe but there are times that i'll just feel very crappy. i also started having difficulty in sleeping because i'm always thinking about things that make me feel crappy. so now, i'm considering taking anti-depressants. i don't know much about them but i don't think i'm ready to go to a shrink to ask about them. are there anti-depressants that doesn't need prescription from a doctor? and is it ok to take them because i'm worried i might get addicted to them?
