Generally I can just about cope with it day to day.

Why does it seem like everyone I know who has depressive disorders almost all was sexually molested and later on in life follows substance abuse? Honestly really? It’s like we’re dealt a bad hand before we are even born.
I am considering asking the GP to prescribe me Venlafaxine.Can anyone tell me the efficacy and side effects of this particular drug? The combination of Sertraline&Mirtazapine do not seem to be working for me.
