Dinah,
You are making so much sense to me it scares me. :) Actually, *I* invented all those things...although perhaps you did it slightly before me. I feel the same way, wanting to scream "I know that". That's part of the self-doubt and depression for me. It's part of feeling like a fraud or a failure, because what makes perfectly reasonable sense doesn't help. Of course those things sound perfectly reasonable. But they leave me flat. And if it were just that, I trust that I have the cognitive capacity to implement those strategies.

And like you, I can use them to be socially acceptable, but it doesn't make me feel any better. That's why I always said I needed a very smart therapist who would see through my smiling and nodding in agreement to the quivering mass of fear and self-doubt and pain underneath. I'm glad I found that!

Take care,
gg
