I have to agree with Christy on this one. Now, I am the frugal, nature-loving, earth-mama queen, but Prozac & thyroid is the only thing that works for me. St. John’s Wort did not. I have dealt with clinical, chronic depression for over 30 years. My life is not that bad, but unfortunately my genes are. I am all for finding as much happiness & beauty in your life as can be found, but if that’s not enough, take a pill if it will save your life.
