I believe that the advice you received from L. Benson is not sound and possibly very risky, and I have so informed her. Being so driven as you say you are, that you can't even stop for anything is an indicator that you may have bipolar
disorder, which is a mood disorder, that can include elements of depression, but also of manic behavior, which is very driven, such as you describe.
Of course you need a proper diagnosis, but if you do have bipolar, then it may be very harmful to you to take an antidepressant, and this kind of medication can increase your manic behavior, trigger swings between mania and depression, causing rapid cycling between the two states, or even cause mania and depression to work at the same time.
The result of this could be catastrophic and lead you to a breakdown, or to suicidal thinking or behavior.
You condition warrants an examination by a medical doctor who specializes in mental disorders and psychotropic drugs. They are called psychiatrists and are best suited to treat you for bipolar disorder, if that is indeed what you have.
Many general practitioners make the same mistake of giving antidepressants to polar patients, thus sending them to the hospital.
I urge you to get a professional opinion with a face-to-face examination with a psychiatrist.
This disorder can be controlled.
