I'm so impressed by the things you are doing to make this world a better place: dumping hazardous waste in the proper place, donating used items, etc. It sounds like you are taking things moment to moment. I hope that is working for you.
Boy can I relate about the MAOI weight gain. For me, it's a huge chocolate craving. Now that I am feeling stronger, I'm tackling watching my calories in the hopes that I can drop enough to not feel so tight in my clothes. Please don't let weight gain interfere with your progress. it's merely a function of the meds...no reflection on you.
Also, perhaps your T can integrate concepts from DBT if not doing a formal DBT program. I use that with a number of my clients, BPD, depression, and others. The concepts are so much more validating than pure CBT IMO.
Take care and keep posting!
