Thanks everybody for your responses. It seems that the concensus is that most of you are in talk therapy too and are gaining some relief from it. I recall someone mentioning that dysthymia is a less severe form of depression, however in hindsight I think I would have rather been extremely depressed for a few months than moderately depressed for a few years. My life has been on hold for many years. I should add that I would consider myself treatment resistant and have run the gamut of SSRIs and a few others and am now on Nardil. I apologize for using the term "pill popper", I realize it has negative connotations but that was not my intention. I think I'll probably see about some therapy. I have not officially done CTB, but I feel like what I did do was useful for anxiety, especially thought stopping and the like. Does it really work for depression?
