Are Antidepressants Shaping My Writing?

My first attempt to use medication to help my mental health didn’t go very well at all. I’ve always been anxious — As a child, overly careful and reserved. As an adult, I worried about every new danger as I became aware of the myriad things that can go wrong in any situation. Stretches of depression started popping into my calendar, giving me all the ambition and willpower of a fallen leaf.
