Ice cream is always important to me! Studying does not count as fun/relaxation.

At least your team is responsive. That is really important.

How long have you been in therapy? You say that your depressions are short? How long do you go between them?

I'm one of those long term depressed people. This run has been about 18 months. The first one was 4 years. (These are the amount of time I am out of work)

My new therapist (less than 2 months) is on vacation for 2 weeks. I see him Tuesday, and that will be a good thing. He's very different from my first therapist (he is Psychodynamic, she was CBT). He has done some good things already, so I have some hope for the future.

I saw my first therapist for 8 1/2 years. So there should have been the question of whether she was right for me, but I was involved in a dependency/transference thing with her and I couldn't imagine leaving. The transference got really painful and I decided I had to leave. When I stopped seeing her I started feeling better. I was so surprised.

If you've been with your therapist a while you could ask if there would be a different kind of therapy that might work better for you. What kind do you have now?

My pdoc is well known as a really superior pdoc in the area, so I have no inclinations to leave him. I guess with a pdoc you need to look at whether he values your input, and whether he keeps trying until something works.
