Hello and welcome to this website. Hopefully things will start getting better for you soon. Lets see if I can help somewhat.

Is there anything in particular that is making you feel the way you do? Such as a traumatic experience for example like a bad breakup?

Obviously if your shrink isn't helping, you need a different therapist that would be able to better help you with your recovery. Have you asked about seeing someone else? Do you have the same feelings when you do things that you usually enjoy?

Hey there,

I'm really glad that you posted because it's clear that things are pretty tough for you right now and if you feel that your shrink isn't helping then it can often seem like you haven't got anywhere else to turn. Many people often find that the first port of call they go to for help doesn't work but that doesn't mean you have to stop there. Yes, your counsellor that you have at the moment isn't helping but that doesn't mean that someone else can't. Not everyones methods work for everyone. Tell them that they aren't helping and see if there's someone else that you can talk to at the practice or even start looking around for someone else. Remember that for every time something doesn't help, you're one step closer to finding something that does.

You say that you're scared that you might do something -- perhaps that means there's something inside you that doesn't want this? That doesn't actually want to die, but instead wants to stop feeling this way? You can fight and get through this and that fear inside you is the strength that can help you find another means of support. There are plenty of people out there who are there to help. Don't stay with someone who isn't helping. You deserve to fight through this and you can as well.

Hi, welcome to TH
Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right anti-depressants for you. I personally have tried fluoxetine, sertraline, mirtazapene, venlafaxine and now duloxetine. I though that I would never find the right one for me, but duloxetine seems to be making a difference. As well as drugs, I believe that counselling and talking to people is essential. Although my anti-depressants are working to some extent, I still don't feel 100% and counselling is helping some.

It's all about finding what works for you, but I suggest that you keep trying the drugs as when you find the right ones, they realy can help.

Hi there, welcome to TH! In addition to what others have posted, I must ask, why is it that you feel your therapist is useless? The only reason I ask is because I also had this problem many, many times before, and actually changed therapists many times due to it. This was until I realized that it actually wasn't my therapists but me. I wasn't doing my part by being completely honest. Once I started to be open about my problems, I really saw a difference.

Do you find yourself trying to push your therapist away?
