> Pam and Elizabeth,
> Thank you for your replys and words of encouragement. It's good to know others that understand!
> I went to visit my therapist today and he immediately started me in the DBT group.(I had cut myself this weekend and he felt it would be best for me to start right away). I also met with my new "Meds" Doc. He was great. He talked with me about alot of diferent issues, unlike the past two "Med" Docs I had before. He started me on Celexa today to help with the depression. He was unsure of taking me off of the Wellbutrin for now. I had a long day at the hospital, 1:00 to 6:00 but I have to say I feel very hopeful and encouraged by the new help I am getting. For once I feel I have Docs that understand my illness. :) I am also going to put myself totally into the DBT program.

Don't we wish we could just "snap out of it". I really hate when people say that. Or when they say "get out and get some excersize", when you can hardly get out of bed!! I'm alot better now, but I remember when people said that to me , I'd have to bite my tongue for fear of going off on them! Have a great Thanksgiving Everybody!
