I want a new drug
One that won’t go away
One that won’t keep me up all night
One that won’t make me sleep all day

i have a long and sorted battle with meds in regards to my depression. i might as well start at the beginning.
my first depressive cycle, diagnosed as seasonal effective disorder, sad, coming in the winter, ended up to be a relatively minor one. i beat it back with just a careful regimen of good diet and exercise.
this week, i have had a question of my own mortality rolling around in my head. no, not i plan to find a tall bridge, more of a long term outlook. ya see, i had my annual physical this week and my cholesterol came back high. being a good modern doctor, she pushed statin drugs. do i take them or not? the question arises, why?
