Boy howdy, do I ever agree with this. A bad marriage is a sure fire cause of depression. I suffered from depression most of my adult life and attribute it to 2 things: a) bad marriage and b) poor nutrition. Some people are very sensitive to bad nutrition and I am one of them. Cleaning up my diet and taking Omega 3 worked wonders for me.

Making those changes changed my life dramatically while taking Paxil and yapping my head off to a counselor made absolutely no difference.
