Newbie here. I'm just going to dive right in. I'm almost 40. Married with a teenage son.
I've been suffering w/ depression for awhile now. Have been on and off meds for awhile too. I get temp. relief from them. But things have gotten worse in the last year. And I have recently started talking with a therapist. But I don't even know how to start. I don't really want to talk about things that truely matter because.... it hurts to much. Everything makes me cry. But, I know I NEED to. So far we've touched on a few things. ADD, OCPD are at the top of the list.
So, what to I talk about? I feel sad about everything. I don't know why I feel this way. I mean, I know I'm unhappy and irritable. I know I'm not a pleasant person to be around anymore. I can't handle ANY stress. I'm overwhelmed even by little things. And I don't believe I'm this way for a specific thing or reason. Do I just start off the session by telling him all the things I hate about myself, my life or like I am confessing my sins or something?
How/where do I begin? I need a starting point. Do I just blurt something out?
