14. I didn't have therapy
But I think I'm unusual in that work was my therapy. I'm a doer by nature, and throwing myself into getting my work done, doing it well and getting my career on track was priceless therapy for me.

My biggest concern is monitoring (and the lack of it) and giving an anti-depressant to someone who is experiencing situational depression.

Major depression is biologically based and should be treated like any other illness. But if one is depressed over the loss of a job, loss of a loved one, etc., is medication really the way to go? Wouldn't talk therapy, or therapy of some sort, be a better choice?
