正确答案 :
1. “Now that I have been taking my antidepressant for a week, I am going to feel better about myself.”
解释 :
In the first week or so of taking an antidepressant, the vegetative symptoms of depression (poor sleep, appetite, and energy level) improve. However, it takes 3 to 4 weeks for improvement in self-concept/self-esteem to take place.
