I feel out of control
Tuckerman13 posted:
I have been struggeling a lot with depression, and binge eating. I'm on medication & have been for many years, I'm not sleeping well at night, I ache all over, gained over 40lbs. I feel like my whole life is out of control. I see a therapist but things are not getting better, they seem to be worse. Does anyone have any suggestions to help me?

If you have seen same therapist weekly for a year then his/her therapy style isnt working. COnsider asking therapist to change approaches or refer you to someone who can? Ditto on your med. It isn;t working so ask your doc for advice on a change perhaps
