Why choose "My Own Worst Enemy" as the title for my blog? Simple. I am the main thing that is getting between me and not being depressed. I've been on antidepressants for years, different names and different doses. At first, each one seems to help for a bit, but then I plateau for a while, and then start sinking back down to where I started, each time feeling lower and lower than before.
Almost every thought during my depression has been why I am not good enough, why I am a terrible person and how I do not deserve to be happy. No matter what medications I take, nobody can change those thoughts except myself.
I have a long road ahead of me to ensure that I am no longer my own worst enemy, and hopefully by documenting my journey I can help others may be going through the same thing I am.
