Hello everyone, I havent been on here for a while but often read posts with interest. I dont hear much from the old crowd ie. Bob, Hannah, Lucy, Sue, Gemma etc. so I hope you are all alright.
Ive been through quite a lot lately. I think I mentioned my benefit problems before, but just to say that is sorted at long last and Im on full ESA as I cant work due to depression/anxiety.
I have tried part time jobs but hasnt worked out. I recently thought I would get back in touch with the mental health team to get some more treatment.
I saw someone yesterday who told me I have had everything possible over the years. I have had CBT, stress/anxiety control courses, TA and one to one counselling. I asked if there was anything else that I have. She told me we could just look at the information that I have been given and see how I can use it more.
I wasnt really happy with this suggestion at first. Thinking about it now Im thinking it could be a good idea.
What do other people think. Has anybody had any 'talking' therapy that has worked for them.
I have found over the years that talking therapies work for a short time, like weeks, then Im back to square one.
I have found depression never goes away but i just need to learn to live with it better.
I appreciate any advice.
