Yes- sometimes CBT can make OCD worse because you may fall into mental obsessions/compulsions. Look for a therapist who does ERP (exposure and response prevention). An SSRI will also likely help. Good luck!


Gotcha. I have! Sadly when I call, they’ve not been open to new patients. I’ve looked all over the state (and looking for a female provider which also narrows the pool).

Curious: What are everyone’s grails?

Kittle (coming back from IR) or Gesicki (vs. Houston)?

I think the 49ers will ease Kittle back from his injury and have him primarily block against the Arizona defense.

However, Miami may primarily run the ball due to the game script vs. Houston.

What do you guy think?

I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?

Anyone else have periods of time where it just feels like a dark cloud hanging over you and it comes with nonstop crying and just feeling awful? But I can’t pinpoint what causes it, and it eventually disappears again without me knowingly doing anything to change it. Been going through this the past few days and it sucks a lot, hopefully will subside soon and let me have peace.

Last week was the last time we spoke or saw each other. When i left she gave me a very long, tight hug. We were supposed to have plans today. I've been msging all week and being left on read.

Is there a good way to ask for more support from a significant other? I opened up about some of my issues but they responded with a lot of (bad) advice and it felt like I wasn’t even being heard. I want support and caring not “you should do this”. Or maybe it’s just not worth discussing with this person?

Has anyone dealt with a therapist not being able to see you (virtually) while you are temporarily located in another state? I’m struggling with coordinating my work and when I’ll be in my home state with my sessions because apparently I can only be seen when I’m physically in my home state. Are there different types of lisences I should look for that would allow someone to treat me while traveling? It’s all very confusing…
