Re: depression, has practicing Aikido helped in any way?

Graham, I don't know the side effects of any medication that I haven't taken, given to my children or witnessed another family member taking. I relied on Janet's opinion, knowing that she is a licensed and experienced RN in California, had to have extensive training, underwent demanding testing and continues to be required to undergo continuing education courses to maintain her licensure. The opinion of a qualified and experienced medical professional carries far more weight with me on this subject than the opinion of a layman. I would give more weight to your opinion relating to any field in which you are an expert as well.
