Hi Seldom,

Yes, psychotherapy has been very helpful for me in surviving the severe depression and for other issues. Depression leaves a lot of debris in its wake and a good therapist can help you put the pieces back together.

Until I had adequate medication in place, the therapy was to a large degree "life support". Once the depression eased up a bit, I could gain other benefits from it as well.

Unfortunately, the fact still remains that if I am not on the right medication, I become terribly depressed and anxious again. Quickly. But when in remission, I can then use some of the wisdom my therapists have helped me gain.
