Social support is good, very good. I am working on building up a group of people. I went to 3 parties this weekend. Met a handful of lovely people that I could actually be friends with (and a group of people to play beer pong with... groan)

I even have offer from 2 women to spend some time at their place when h goes out of town for work.

h can help. Actually our relationship is bouncing back nicely from being kind of tense at the start of the summer. Stress is down and affection is up. He can be very supportive and nurturing, but part of my issue is that I don't want to ask for help. I *expect* it, sometimes, and that's unreasonable. Other times I just want to tough it out on my own.

This most recent absence of T was marked by some interesting changes in my life... stressful in their own right. I decided not to make a big deal about my therapist being out of town, just in case it would start a "I don't know why you care so much about T" argument with h. Maybe at some level he feels that our marriage is being intruded upon by this stranger who practices a craft that is much despised by h.

ever since I started the zoloft (AND 2x weekly regular sessions about 3.5 weeks ago) h has remarked how much more even-tempered I am, and how much happier it makes him to have such a good marriage after carrying the burden of depressed Noodle for SO long.

you got some good ideas...

p.s. I don't pay my T- someone else does :)
