Thank-you for all your replies... sorry I didn't answer sooner- was a bit down yesterday.

I think I find therapy frustrating because I do so want to get better; I've been dealing with depression ever since I can remember, and I don't want to spend the rest of my life like this!

I've read just about all the self-help books I can tolerate; taken up meditation, read all the self-healing tips I could find. It just doesn't seem to get any easier. For a few days I think I'm ok, and then the big black tsunami comes out of nowhere and pulls me under.

I did have therapy about 2 years ago until I could no longer afford it- then was on a waiting list for nearly another year to get this means-tested one... been going to her for about 6 months now.

(did I say this in my original post? I can't remember...) I did a Level 1 certified counselling course during the year I was waiting, (and part of Level 2- had to drop out) in an attempt to keep working on my issues... I thought I might get some insights that way. (sigh)

Anyway, thanks again for your encouragement!
