I saw my therapist yesterday and it went great. It was a lot of questions and just him getting to know me. Understanding my thoughts and all. I thought it went great. He says I am doing great things to help myself with my depression symptoms. Like yoga and reducing the stress around me. He also printed out very useful material for me to read. Just basics like what not to do when you are depressed,thing to do when you are depressed and ACCEPT your depression and ways to do that. Which is a big one for me. It has helped tremendously. Im gonna battle this depression. I wont let it beat me.
Also on a good note my antidepressant kicked in Wednesday. I fell asleep on my own. Which was my biggest issue overall. i just fell asleep and didnt even know it till my husband came to bed about two hours later. I couldnt believe it. It felt great. I feel great. i slept from 8pm to 6am. WOW! Then last night i fell asleep at like 730 and woke up at 630. It feels so good to sleep on my own now. No more sleeping pills for me.
But if anyone wants some of the info my doc gave me let me know. I think i can do that on here right? Or i can send it to your email. It really has helped me. I havent had a depressed thought get to me all day. So excited and happy I am getting a hold of my depression! thanks for listening to me babble.

I am absolutely delighted to hear that everything goes so well! It must be so nice to finally fall asleep without those pills.

about those documents, I would love to read them! Even though it am not depressed anymore, I think it can still help me, and maybe others. If you could mail them? (I don't know if you can post them here)

Anyway, keep up the good spirit!!

All the best,

Its great news to hear that you are on the road to healing. Finding a therapist you click with can be a never ending chore for some people so getting one that you get along with is great news. As for sharing info that the doctor gave you... I dont see why you cant share it on here but bear in mind HW is not a place for medical advice. General stuff is OK though.


Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
