Hi @johneckenrode11,
I am glad you are taking an interest in self-help. Therapy can come with an expensive bill, I would just pay attention to any signs of veering off track as self therapy can be daunting. I have included a page that offers several different avenues for CBT and depression as well as a free national help line that you can call to get more information.

Self Help Guidance: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/self-help-therapies/
National Helpline, Free: https://www.samhsa.gov/find-help/national-helpline

I know that @junkartist and @helenfrances have had experience with CBT and/or DBT. I am interested if they can provide any feedback. John, what medicine did you take in the past that caused side effects? Have you discussed with your general physician about CBT self-help?

Thanks Ginger for the links. The meds I tried were Zoloft (Sertraline) and the side effect was weight gain. In addition, the med was not much help. Tried Abilify and it made me absolutely crazy with anxiety and disorientation. The others I tried I can't remember, probably because they didn't work at all.
