Hello BHS,

This is not your time to see a counselor or therapist. I went several years with meds as the main focus. Then about 3 years ago I did/am seeing a therapist. I do not know what I would do without her…Here is a toast to your happiness.

Hello BHS, I am happy that you found your own answers to what bothers you. We are all different. I have just said a prayer for you.

Yes Piglet. It is important to confide with your counselor and to feel at ease – even better. The therapist’s expertise is also important. My therapist engages in “Active Listening.” She does not focus on advice. She also told me that this is because what is good for one person may not be good for another.

As long as you trust your doctor you do not need to be afraid of taking psychiatric drugs. When I first saw a psychiatrist several years ago I was afraid to take the medicine. Now I am afraid not to use the meds. Your situation may be very different than mine. What works for me might not work for you. @anonymous3

Different things work for different people. My therapists and psychiatrists have all worked well with me.
