Hey Tyler, definitely cool that you are now able to see through that experience and also realizing that yes, anti-depressants are a bridge of support that through the use of the tools and your determination to get through it assists you to get to a point of clarity.
I also agree on reaching out to Joe on that regard, and in general realizing that depression is more of a symptom of not being living the potential that we know we can get to create and live, so this is another perspective to see that it may be a way for you to realize that you need to create a new path to develop yourself in your life, and yes needing to find out what you need to change and do in order to do so.
Taking the DIP Course is one way to also get to understand more about who you are and who you have become in a structural way that keeps you 'in track' in the many aspects that may emerge as you 'walk through your mind,' so keep that in consideration as well.
You can start with taking - again if you have already - the DIP Lite course to start developing the basics again and the writing habit on a daily basis as part of your self-support.
Keep at it and thanks for sharing
