Please don't measure yourself against the others. Trust my experience, when we do that, we are guaranteed to come out feeling less than. And besides, your day treatment time was lengthened because you didn't have the right medication for you. Many of us know the frustration of that.
BTW, where are you with your meds? If you are in medication no man's land, ie, tapering off but not up to therapeutic dose on the next one, this could be contributing to your depression.
I can relate to the feelings of demoralization. This is hard work, trying to get better. And when it is slow and arduous, and backslides sometimes, it is hard to muster up the *optimism*, of all things, that we need to do this work of getting better.
Harry, do you need to go to the hospital?
Harry, YOU NEED TO GET SOMEONE TO TAKE THE GUN OR GUNS OUT OF YOUR REACH. End of lecture.
Harry, I want you keep yourself safe because there is the possibility it will get better. Please.
