8 weeks in and still feels like I’m going backwards

Posted , 3 users are following.

So I’m 8 weeks in on 20mg. Up to around 6 weeks it seems I was making a little progress then, At around 6 weeks it seemed like I started going backwards, getting depressed again, crying, unwanted thinking. I’m trying to hang in there. I saw a new counselor the other day and I’m going back again this evening. I still have a few decent hours or part of a day here and there, but it seems to be less and less. 

Any suggestions?

Thanks and I wish you all the best.

    Its good you are seeing a counsellor. Try not to rely on meds to solve all your problems think of them as support to assist you. Having a balanced life helps alot, practising relaxation and doing things that make you happy. All the best to you with all this.

      Yeah, I’m starting to see they aren’t magic pills, but a tool to assist and the rest is up to me. Seeing the new counselor was good, he explained the CBT process in a way I could understand. On a positive note, yesterday was pretty good, and I think I helped it get there with the counselers advice. 

      Thanks Paula, and best wishes to you.
