> Ilene,
> 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.

You don't understand! I'd feel guilty if I didn't do things the right way. Plus I'm taking all my donations off my taxes.

It sounds like you are taking things moment to moment. I hope that is working for you.

Actually, I'm not. I'm thinking all the time. It's just the way I write things down.

> 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.

Doesn't matter what the cause is. I look in the mirror or I feel myself in my clothes and I feel *lousy*. Losing weight has been one of my very few accomplishments over the past year.

> 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.

It's interesting that you say that because I think I have irritated my pdoc by questioning CBT. I'm sure it works very well for many people, but they are probably wired differently from me. I got a lot out of "Feeling Good" many years ago, when I was healthier.
