I was diagnosed with depression in middle school and was medicated for it until college when I decided I didn’t want drugs controlling my cognition. Cutting myself off a fairly high dose of paroxetine and the occasional quetiapine during my first year living in New York while enrolled at NYU was a mistake in hindsight, and on one forgettable spring day in 2006, I decided I’d had enough and tried killing myself with a mix of sleeping pills and alcohol.
