Sitting in the doctor’s office as a college student, feelings of despair washed over me. This was the third doctor I had been to, looking for answers to my unexplainable symptoms of fatigue and dizziness.
What was their answer? “You need antidepressants”. I was shocked and a little miffed at this third doctor’s diagnosis. Though at the time I didn’t know the dangers of taking antidepressants, I knew this was not the answer to my problems. How could fatigue + dizziness = antidepressants? It just wasn’t logical to me.
