Emotional wreck: No, it's not "normal" to need pills to live your life. Medications may help people with severe anxiety disorders and depression manage their symptoms. Usually it's best to also be in psychotherapy so you can learn about yourself & how you function, as well as learning tools to deal with stresses that affect you. If you haven't already, please consult with a psychiatrist and/or psychologist.
