Hi Bozeman

Many thanks for such a long and interesting message- really helps! I'd got stuck on 'but they're true', but can now see the skills could be a useful part of the toolkit.

I got concerned that if I went to see someone they would disapprove of meds as I followed a link from an earlier message to a website about CBT which included 2 chunks of text about how unproven and unhelpful antidepressants were (apologies if I misunderstood- bit of overgeneralising, perhaps!)Having that discussion with a therapist just sounded frustrating.

I like the idea of adding something *extra*, and with the possible advantage of needing meds less or even not at all, which would be wonderful. And as you say life can be very complex and stressful.

Thanks again for a great message!

Fi
