TherapyGirl, I can understand your frustration because what I usually do when I am depressed doesn't work now for me. Luckily for me my T hasn't suggested anything but agreed with me on taking some meds. She lets me think it out on my own. So far it has worked because I hate it too when someone gives the platitudes thing. Point or not, I am not sure it is timing either. I mean in our heads we know what we should do right we can't because emotionally we can't. I know I need to exercise. But I don't. My head knows I should but I don't. Simple as that. And anyone that tells me just do I might choke. Same with being depressed. My H and son tell me just stop being depressed. I think depression brings a side to us that makes us not trust whats ahead. So it is hard to accept that in time we will be better why will we be better what will change.

I have a new motto. Take each lousy day as a lousy day. Live it as a lousy day. Take baby steps in trying to feel better not big ones. Do one small thing in making me feel better. And so far I am doing somewhat better. I am so sorry you are in the black hole. I just got out somewhat about three days ago. I am not cured by no means but I am taking baby steps to try and put some order in my life. That is all we can do. Take it slow, try our best, and I am glad she changed her tactics once you told her the approach was not working for you. At least she listens. And maybe you have a lot of changes too if you changed every thing in two years that is huge too so go easy on yourself. I think we all beat ourselves us too much. One thing we need to try and do is give ourselves a break. Support each other and ourselves. We are all worth it. So are you TherapyGirl. I hope to see you get out of that black hole. It is a scary place. rk
