I am so sorry about the delay in starting the CBT but remember to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
I know you will make it through my friend. I am sure you are worried about the lumps but try to stop googling and just let it be until the tests results are in, not good to get caught up in the anticipatory anxiety mode.
As for meds, I am not on an AD now for the depression as I did not find one that worked well and the side effects were not good. I do use the Valium and the Trazodone for sleep. I sleep well on 100 mg of Trazadone but I do wake up early. That is ok because I can always come here and read and post and just stay in the moment.
Take care and thank you for the update.

Thanks everyone for your help and lending an ear. My crying finally stopped. I'm not sure why I was crying except that everything is falling apart. So, I guess I just answered that question. I continue to learn and hope that I will be strong enough some day to accept anxiety completely.
Ben, I'm so glad your medication problems may be over. It sounds like you're on your way to recovery. Don't move too fast and don't forget to treat yourself well as you find peace. You deserve a wonderful, long, healthy life. I wish you well!
