Today was my last session with my P for the summer. I do not know how to survive anymore and suspect I will not manage more than a few weeks, but we'll see. The pain is absolutely excruciating.

LC,

Have you thought about trying Mood Gym, an online CBT program?

Me,bers here who have tried it have said it's been helpful.

The pain is absolutely excruciating.

I’m so sorry you’re suffering like this. I did find CBT as recommended by Turk helped me, but also medication was a big, big help. I know you may not feel like it, but have a go at some of the suggestions, some of it may well help.

You also mentioned not being able to stop thinking about your family. Rumination is a common problem when BPD is involved, I found computer games or painting helped break those thoughts. Anything that’s arresting, so maybe a hobby, may break the rumination.

You mentioned coming home and feeling down – being close to nature can help. I’ve been depressed in a beautiful setting and depressed at home, but depressed in a beautiful setting is much better. Never forget, it’s just how you’re feeling now, it’s not forever. Don't isolate yourself, even though that might feel natural, I also found the Samaritans are extremely good at dealing with we depressed folk and they're free. Just benefiting from the kindness of strangers can make a difference. Wishing you the best of everything.

Why is your treatment ending for the summer? That sounds completely inappropriate for someone who's severely depressed. You need to find another T. Someone who does not discharge you for three months.

Did you make it completely clear at your visit with your P how bad you are feeling? That you feel like you can't even last another few weeks? This is not a good time to go without treatment.
