I think meds make us compromise rather than do what we really need to do to be happy in life most of the time... just my opinion, I know that others think differently. Still, whatever, if he is happy, I will be supportive.
Medication to fix things in the short term isn't a bad thing. It gives you the chance to figure out the why of the depression/anxiety and work on it. I don't agree with medication being used as a crutch so that you don't have to work on your issues, but the clear head to work on those issues is definitely a good thing. As a friend said at the women's group, it can be like putting glasses on your brain.

Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not ok it's not the end.
