My depression only seems to be getting worse and it is causing me to have problems with my friends, family, and my boyfriend. I talked to my councler who pretty much said well we can put you on meds but it is no gurentee that it will work and that I would need to start doing activities in order to help get myself out of it....I felt like screaming at her and walking out of there because I dont think she gets it what more can I do I work full time I go to school full time and when I have free time I do things to occupy my time and hello it isnt working obviously. Then she proceeds to tell me because I see her for personal councling and relationship councling that I need to work on my trust issues and stop being accusitory towards people...well maybe if they wouldnt do stuff then deny it I wouldnt have a problem. She also said well it is probably hormones and from the surgery and the abortion that I had in freaking August. I felt like saying well how about you do your job and what I am paying you for and try to figure out what is wrong with me not telling well it could be this and it could be that.....grrrrr well I am just needing some help on what I can do to deal with this because I really dont feel like being on another medication.

Get a different counselor!! It doesn't appear that your current one is caring or supportive.

Thoughts and prayers are with you,
"The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Accept life, and you must accept regret."
-- Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821-81), Swiss philosopher, poet

I also agree that you need to see a different counselor.I think antidepressants would be a good idea right now.It sounds like you have a very busy life and sometimes that can burn us out.Meaning, that sometimes we cant do it all on our own all the time.Antidepressants or Anxiety medication can be very helpful.I wish you well,and welcome to the forum!
