What is the best type of therapy for grief?

What is the best type of therapy for grief?

I have been referred by the mental health matters team in my home town Warrington for cbt to help with my grief over losing my dad earlier this year.
I am taking 100mg of sertrilen, but I'm not sure if cbt will help me or not.
I have been waiting since either last month or the month before for someone to contact me, but the lady from mhm Warrington said that there's an 18 week wait for an appointment for cbt, but I cannot remember the name of the company that is going… read more

Depression and meds that dont go with it

Depression and meds that dont go with it

Miradep - codeine is a no no.

Probiflora - Intense Rescue for Adults (not for lactose intolerant people!)

For people who are lactose intolrant please do not use this probiflora. I found out the horrible way after 11 days on it, winds galore, loss of appetite, bloated belly and just not feeling well after a major op. I am lactose intolerant! Nowhere on the box does it warn you! Ordered by my pharmicist to stop taking them immediately.

Leria for back problems - Leria is… read more

How do I motivate myself to do anything?

How do I motivate myself to do anything?

I feel so tired all of the time even though I sleep a lot. I’m on no depression medication as I don’t like how they make me feel. I have anxiety about going to doctors or even calling my friends and family. My husband does not understand. I so want to feel better.

How do you deal with failure?

How do you deal with failure?

This is probably one of the worse things that I can ever experience in my life, if someone tells me what a failure I am and how I can't do anything right...well they don't usually say it in those words, but that's at least how my mind picks up hints from how people are talking to me. I know I'm not perfect. Nobody is perfect. But sometimes I feel like I'm the worst of the worst. I feel dumb, that I'm not worth anything.

How I deal with my failures basically, is planning a way out,… read more

What to do

What to do

So recently, my uncle died, quite suddenly from cancer, we had all had a family feud with him for years, basically he blamed the family for his wife walking out.. anyway. As you know, my dad abused me and wasn’t a part of my life after 14. My uncle was one of the only male role models I had, in the end, my mother and sister made up with him, I, couldn’t face him, I did my bit by helping with his children, with support, childcare and financially. When he died I went in the room to say goodbye, I couldn… read more

I'm in the same boat. Many many meds over the years with little success. Any relief I get is temporary at best. Recently, I started DBT therapy… read more
