I'm really pleased to hear you have survived the suicide attempts, and hope you won't try it again --- i's nice to have you around. Depression can indeed come and go. Completely without treatment, an episode of Depression tends to last around 9 months or so, and in many of us there are other episodes. With proper treatment it may be less likely to return, and to be less long and unpleasant when it's present. All antidepressants, like almost all drugs, have some side-effects, but including Depmil, they don't have particular lill-effects when used long-term. You can try asking the Anxiety-Depression support group and Lifeline ( numbers on this page ) and FAMSA, to check on the potential availability of more economical psychotherapy and counselling for you, near where you are.
