> I'm glad this is helping. Has therapy helped at all? Not everybody is able or willing to dive into it and some therapists, frankly, just suck. others are just a bad fit. I lucked out with a psychiatrist very skilled in psycho-dynamic therapy with whom I forged a strong bond. I just wanted to spill my guts to him after years of burying everything.

I have been in and out of psychotherapy beginning years before being diagnosed as having a mood disorder. Like you, I had a great deal of trouble being able to open up at first. I was involutional, which prevented me from communicating and processing. Since then, I have pretty much rebuilt myself and opened up such that psychotherapy became effective - as long as my depressive state is partially improved. I go for therapy whenever I feel the need. I continue to use CBT, although I could probably use a tune-up. Fortunately, my psychiatrist is strong in psychodynamic and other psychotherapies. If I'm having a psychological issue, he is not hesitant to discuss it with me.
