I agree that therapy is not that helpful unless the biological component of depression is under some control and I'm glad you have a good psychiatrist.

My sister-in-law is apparently (my husband and I are separated and though we talk frequently, I'm no longer in touch with his family), depressed severely enough that she was recently hospitalized. She won't go to therapy, won't go out of her "comfort zone" as my husband puts it (though it's not very comfortable for her right now).

He was awful to me when I was in the pit of depression and that is one of the reasons I left. But he now says that I was a survivor, had strong survival skills that got me through the worst - by which he meant my willingness to dive into therapy. He worries his sister has no real survival skills.

I do agree with him that opening up and trying to look at things clearly that you've spent your life avoiding is difficult but necessary.
