Does needing antidepressents mean that i just don't know how to handle my sadness and could medication be replaced with coping skills?

In brief: Perhaps

But the best way to succeed without medication is w/ a coach - a CTB therapist you trust and work well with can teach you coping skills and more.
If they think you would benefit from meds, they'll help you see why. I'd try it drug free for a bit if you want to give it your best!
