Re: How long does depression last?

Hi Em That all sounds like a nightmare and it takes real guts to have managed all of that so well done. I hope you can acknowledge how well you have done. I would want out of the family home too - does you Mum have issues of her won that would explain (not justify I want to add) how she spoke to you...

Re: FLAT

Hi Working full time is hard, really hard. It feels like there is no room to manoeuvre or space for yourself but I agree about it giving us a sense of responsibility (which is also a scary thing). Your day off sounds lovely - remember, if it doesn't go to plan then that's OK. I'm not in a good place...

Re: FLAT

Hi Its great to hear from you but so sorry you're not in a better place. Motivation, or lack of it, can be so destructive as it takes away so much from us and makes us miss out on the good stuff. Could you set yourself one small target a day that would then give you some sense of achievement when yo...

Re: Automatic thoughts

Hi Deb I totally understand where you're at. its a nightmare and its exhausting. Its good (very good) that you're spotting the automatic thoughts, that's a huge skill to have so please give yourself credit for that. I've also worked out that mental illness is a minefield and so unpredictable. You ar...

Re: Counselling

Hi I had a similar experience with my employee assistance offer. I told her how anxious I felt and she said that my breathing told her I wasn't anxious at all and wouldn't even explore it any further! I did stick with her for another couple of telephone sessions but didn't feel any better for it. So...

Fear of therapy ending is all-consuming

Hi I'm having DBT at the moment and have been since last July. I have a great one-to-one therapist and I also go to a skills group once a week. I'm on my second cycle of the DBT and in some ways it has made big differences. Right now I'm in a mess. My depression is spiralling and my anxiety is out o...

Re: Partner not supportive

Hi Sorry to hear about your situation. Sertraline (any meds) take a while to settle in and you can have some odd symptoms whilst you're waiting. I wonder if your partner is scared and is trying to ignore what is going on in the hope it will all go away? My partner wasn't supportive at first - think ...

Re: Telephone counselling

Hi I did quite a few online sessions and some over the phone. I was dreading the online ones because I didn't want to be seen but after I'd worked out how to minimise the image of myself on the screen I actually stopped thinking about it. I found it very useful - no travelling, no getting dressed ap...
