Well it's that day and the session is over. My husband went in with me and that was fine. She spent two hours with me. Only charged $60 without insurance. One time deal on that only. But she said that I'm definitely anxious and now depressed. And she like me believes anxiety leads to depression. Also realizes antidepressants don't work for all people. Since benzos have worked for me I'm staying on them. It's been over 30 years. So we are going to do things in baby steps. Right now I'm so frightened of being alone, going places, just fear. She said I didn't have to write but a list of things I used to enjoy would help narrow down where to start. I told her Nursing was my passion. So we'll probably start there. Not right away but maybe some voluntering in a medical setting in a while. I told her I love doing admissions and nurses(most) hate it maybe do them? I still have an active Nursing license. So no school til 2008. That gives me some time. She said I needed to work hard. Oh and my GP is getting me the consultation I requested for an endocrinologist as my depression anxiety got so bad when my thyroid went hypo. Never saw one. And my Mother died of Addison's disease so a cortisol level I will request and also hormone levels if he does them even though I've been through menopause. She said that the depression I had at age 27 that I got myself out of means I can do it again. I'm so tired . I asked her why she said that talking for hours would do that. But I used to do so many things and be so physically active running etc. She said it didn't matter. Oh and that goes on the list too as I no longer can run due to disc problems in my neck and spine. No idea when the consult will be. probably weeks. But anyway what do you think ? Do you think this sounds like a good therapist? Love Phillipa
