    Just had a consult with a new therapist. He seems to understand what I told him and what he said about his approach resonates with me. Got an appointment for next week and I think this might actually help

    Mood : Hopeful

    I decided to see a therapist since I currently have good insurance. I went through the entire intake including hours of paperwork and a very vulnerable session only to have the “therapist” decline to keep seeing me because I have a history of depression and admitted to self-harming 10 years ago. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK. It’s not like I need…[Read more]

    • I don’t understand why a therapist would not want to see a patient because their health history. I mean… They are supposed to help improve your mental health, aren’t they? I’m so sorry this happened to you, @blackdog. Don’t give up, if your insurance allows you to see a different therapist, go for it. There are a lot of them who truly want…[Read more]

    For without pain, there can be no pleasure. Without sadness, there can be no happiness. Without misery there can be no beauty. And without these, life is endless, hopeless, doomed and damned.

    It isn’t always popping pills, downing whiskey, or slicing veins. Sometimes it’s crossing the street without looking; sometimes it isn’t wearing your seatbelt. Sometimes it’s as simple as staying up all night, because you don’t want tomorrow to come.

    • The way I understand it, therapists may stray away from working with you if you aren’t on antidepressants. The approach I would recommend is getting a family doctor or the likes to get you a prescription antidepressant and then looking into talk therapy. The combination is usually the best way to get out of those awful depressive states.
