Sid: about talking sid

Sid, I talk with adamie through e-mail, & I don't think he quite meant that. He doesn't hold back & seems quite open. Some people who've had depression for years develop "unhealthy" thinking patterns & talk therapy is very beneficial for them to retrain their thought processes & to overcome guilty feelings that they shouldn't have.

If someone was "normal" before & some episode precipitated the depression, just straightening the brain chemistry will make them feel good. But it doesn't happen like that very often.

I think it can be a fine line to tread for a doctor. Doctor asks patient "How are you feeling? Any problems you want to talk about?" & patient says "Nope! Everything's good." Does the doctor believe the patient or not? Is the patient really feeling good now or just refusing to discuss problems? I think it would be an awfully tough situation to judge correctly. That's why they're well-trained.

Some people just need to share their feelings with someone, but many really do need talk therapy along with their medications.
