Honey. It's only a matter of time. You will be cured. Let's take you inside the brain.
Why am I so sad? What is wrong with me. FIX ME PLEASE!
Sweetie, you are depressed. This is because there is a decrease in your serotonin levels. Seratonin contributes to your well-being and happiness. It appears to play a key role in maintaining mood balance.
You can use Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition (SSRI) as an anti-depressant. SOOO, serotonin is a neurotransmitter which goes from the dendrites of a neuron, through the cell body into the axon. It then goes down the axon as a nerve impulse which is called an action potential. It then reaches the terminal buttons and the information is released through in neurotransmitters through the synaptic gap.
Additionally, it inhibits the reuptake of the neurotransmitters, allowing for more serotonin to be available in the receptor sites of the post-synaptic neuron.
So now you know the link between serotonin and depression.
Will all of these pills fix me and make me happy?
