Except for ending slavery, fascism, nazism, & communism, WAR HAS NEVER SOLVED ANYTHING!

Well after talking to former missionaries and considering my own personal issues I'm leaning towards not going. I
I just feel I have too many stress problems. I'm on antidepressants and a stress relief pill on occasion, and I don't think being away from my family and friends and familiar surroundings for a whole 2 years will help my cause.
I would like to serve the lord, but I just don't have the desire to leave my life here for 2 years.
I know this sounds kind of bigoted to most of you guys, but whether or not I actually help convert somone to the church or give good service to an LDS ward, I really don't care to be honest. My condition can cause me to go through long or short periods of being apethetic, and I can get angry and be disruptive if I get in a bad mood.
I really like the missionaries that are in our ward, and like to have them over, but as far as me being one of them, it doesn't really seem to fit.
You know, missions aren't for everyone. Being in the MTC and on the mission is a stressful experience and for someone dealing with what you are, it may be a pressure cooker rather than a refiner. I am sure as you counsel with your leaders and parents and with the Lord, you will determine the best course.
