It did turn out much better than I thought, and I'm glad about that. Although I have been on antidepressants on and off for many years, I have always sought them through my regular doctors. I was very nervous about seeing a pdoc, too. I intentionally tried to choose a woman doc, because I think I communicate better with them and they seem to have more empathy...ha ha based on first visit! I also had a limited choice because so many are not taking new clients.

I hope you have a good experience. What I have found is that being on medication helps me to do the deeper work that I need to do to get well. If I weren't on them, I think I would be too depressed to come to therapy sometimes, and I would probalby talk a lot on the surface. I think I would just say "I don't know" a lot, and wouldn't put as much effort into it. I hope that you have a good experience.

And yes, the water weight gain was very depressing!!! So much so that I didn't go to a concert last week that I go to EVERY YEAR! Arrrrggghhh! I just felt way too crappy.

About the 2 T rule...what they teach us in school is that often the relationship itself is a strong curative factor. Perhaps if therapy gets spread among too many team members, it dilutes the intensity of the relationship? Although this is a more psychodynamic approach. We'll see how it goes.

Good luck!
