Depression is a tyrant. A woman I spoke with recently described her experience with it as feeling like she had been rolled up in a thick, black carpet and cut off from the world.
For her, antidepressant drugs, of which she tried many, helped. They work for a lot of people.
But these meds may have a negative impact too. This is the worst I’ve heard: antidepressant drugs may make it harder for people to fall in love.
The hypothesis is put forth by The Nature of Love blogger, Helen Fisher, in a 2007 booked called What is your Dangerous Idea?
Incidentally, she runs what appears to be a dating service website.
And yes, I know, this idea is more than a year old—but come on, it’s interesting.
