    You're young enough that you may have missed Homicide, the TV series. A lot of the people that produced and/or starred in The Wire were in Homicide. David Simon wrote the book that Homicide was based on. It's also set in Baltimore. I HIGHLY recommend it if you like The Wire.

    I love beer but I usually ignore Budweiser. What's that one like?

    A new favorite in our house is Rhinegeist Truth. It's a Cincinnati brewery so I'm not sure where all it's available, but damn it's good.

    It's an amber lager, I think it's 6% alcohol but I already threw the bottles outside in the trash and it's too cold to go check.

    Clinical/counseling psych - MFT program. I ended up with a low A barely because the teacher threw out one of the questions I got wrong. I missed more points on the multiple choice than I did the case conceptualization essay. Opposite of what I anticipated.

    Congrats!

    I had to look up MFT, it's a marriage and family therapist? I think that's great. My son and I both see a family therapist after one of our favorite people committed suicide and she has helped us so much. What an important job.

    I'm applying to grad school in the fall and am excited about it! Going for a MA or MS in communication.

    Thanks! I see my first client next week and I'm pretty excited about it. Sorry to hear about your friend. I'm glad you felt comfortable talking to someone about it.

    Good luck on your grad apps.

    HUGE news. I'm happy for you!

    Don't try to go too far too fast. Just be the therapist you would want for yourself

    How do I go about getting help with my depression? I'm not in a crisis and need a hotline or admitted somewhere. I know I have it just never got help for it. Right now I'm so exhausted and on edge. Had blood work and sleep study done because im so tired and it's all good. Maybe its just my depression and i just need to get rid of this. I sleep but I'm just not refreshed and have no energy.

    I was in counselling as a teen and was going to see the doctor but a family emergency made me cancel and I never went back. Do I start there again or just go to a Docotr or therapy. I have no clue and I have insurance so I'm guessing it would cover some of it.

    I would see a therapist first. From there, they can assess you and recommend either a doctor to see for any meds you need and to continue therapy with them if needed. If you go straight to a GP and tell them you think you're depressed, they may treat it more generally than if you have a proper diagnosis from someone that understands the different degrees of Depression.

    It's really amazing that you're taking steps to help yourself. Don't put it off. You deserve to be happy and part of that is managing this

    Thank you so much! I'd rather not go back to the gp so I'll just go straight to therapy.

    Hey Ashley. I second therapy.

    I had situational depression that lead to anxiety and eventually panic attacks. I started seeing a therapist about 2.5 years ago and it has helped me tremendously. I was diagnosed with PTSD and OCD, which still surprises me. (I just thought I was depressed and also had what I claimed were my own superstitions and rituals.) It's a slow process, though, and I do a lot of the work myself which surprised me. I think I thought that I would go in for a session and be diagnosed right away and told what to do to 'cure' myself, which is not the case. At the beginning, I was not interested in being medicated and she respected that.

    After time, when the panic attacks started, I decided to see a psychiatrist and see if medication would be right for me. Currently I see a therapist, a psychiatrist, attend mindfulness group therapy, and take 3 different meds. I'm feeling pretty good and hopefully can get weened off the meds soon!

    I just wanted to share my story with you as it's a bit of a success. I hope you find a therapist that meshes well with you, that is key. I think you are strong to take this step (it took me so long to reconcile the fact that I needed help).

    Hi Ashley.

    I have ADHD, and one of the issues that many who suffer from ADD/ADHD also suffer from depression, just as I do. It is hard to reconcile that I can't do things the way others do, and that (subconsciously or consciously) makes me equal parts sad and angry.

    The best thing I did was to talk to someone, and I was lucky because my employer has a employee assistance program which covered the first five visits, and then my insurance picked up the rest.

    Just as depression can make you tired, so can inadequate nutrition. Make sure you're eating the right foods, and drinking enough water/vitamins/minerals....

    But definitely, definitely talk to someone. It isn't the same to talk to a loved one, because they can't give you the right kind of feedback, hard as they may try. They can't see that they may be part of the problem, and that would not be good in the long run.

    You may want to go to see your doc, if you have one, to get recommendations about a therapist, but that is certainly not required.

    All the best as you deal with this. Here's what I know ... I don't wanna be reading about you in a thread here. Take care of yourself.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    Thank you for sharing your stories and I'm going to try and call my insurance tomorrow. They have a site with in network therapists but they don't let you search for kid or adult they're just mixed up and I'm tired of clicking a name seeing location and then seeing it's for kids. Also want to make sure I'm reading my coverage correct. Right now there's a guy missing here who was last seen by a bridge after complaining of lack of sleep and insomnia.
