I went to my first T in 1979 I think...I was really depressed, and my roommate was too. We were pathetic at parties ;-). We both went to the clinic at school and ended up seeing the same T separately.

How I found this current T is sorta funny.

I had seen 4 therapists already for depression. I planned on dying by suicide that year. Had everything in order. But I promised myself that I had to try meds first - as a last ditch effort. I asked someone for recommendations for a pdoc, and he gave me a bunch of names, and I made an appt. Well, I screwed up and mistakenly made an appt with a psychologist. Ooopsie. Another stinking T!! How embarrassed was Emmy in that first appointment? Very. Depressed AND dumb, eh?

Six years later I'm still alive, still seeing that T, so I guess he's a keeper.
