Hi @elwooodsdad,

I found an article from 2002 that may offer some more insight and information on dysthymia.

Short-term cognitive therapy shows promise for dysthymia – Current Psychiatry. 2002 May;1(5):43-49

Does it help to try and think about other things you like to do when you get depressed? I just think about the times when I get in a bad mood and what helps me get out of that and it's usually focusing on something I like or that makes me think differently.

I’m having more medication issues than depressive issues. I can usually function with the dysthymia, but changing meds is not fun. I have had talk therapy, and it has been as good or as bad as the therapist. All I want to do is go to sleep, get up, and get on with my day, and deal with the dysthymia as best I can.
