You are not alone. I have been in that place of wanting to crawl into bed and just stay there until.....

I don't know if therapy works. Clearly it does for some people but it's interesting when I hear about people who have been in LONG term and still want more.

For now, I do therapy as part of my mental health needs. I really can't project how important it will be for me in the future or if it will *cure* me of all of my character flaws. I do know that it is much harder than I expected! It is not linear, at all. The progress, if there is any, is taking a very circuitous route!

I was so discouraged last week that I told my therapist that I wanted a referral for anti-depressants. I made the appointment but haven't seen the pdoc yet. I hope I pass the test but my mood has elevated for some reason so I may not "qualify" for meds. Anyway, I am convinced that I need some help beyond just talking.

Do you have any idea what triggered your downward slide? I think its helpful to have a quick follow up when your emotions are so raw. In my experience those sessions have been among the best.

Good luck and hope you are feeling better soon.
