hantsbear: (Seriously Pi**ed Off...)

The black dog continues.  Several times this week, I have felt like crying for no particular reason apart from the hopelessness of it all.  Today, I just feel like hiding from everything as I cannot seem to derive much joy.  I feel like everything I touch turns to failure.

I think I need to seek out more counselling.

Have you been in touch with a therapist regularly? From what you're describing, it sounds like depression, and there are some good medications (and therapy) that do wonders.

Have had some therapy in the last year which did some good at the time. Looking to change my hours at work and reduce them for a few months then review...

What you describe is something I am very familiar with. It's your inner monologue telling you falsehoods by exaggering, catastrophizing and/or engaging in all-or-nothing thinking. If you see a therapist, I suspect you'll get a reassuring reality-check.
You and I have never communicated directly; I hope I'm not overstepping bounds by advising you. By chance, your journal entry landed in my e-mail box on a day when I'm dealing with similar things. Best wishes from Seattle.

No problem; had a phone counseling session the other day which may have given me a way forward; it's just a case of a bit of negotiation at work.
