Spartan,
 
Welcome to our support community.  The program was designed by doctors and can really help you progress though this. Take at look at each step of the program, it is work..but it is affective!
 
CBT is only effective when you do the homework. Worksheets help you track your homework exercises and CBT is a lot of work.

As you move through the Depression Program the worksheets will change as you change. Make sure you give yourself time to do the homework properly - you know your depression best so it's really up to you to decide how often you do your homework. Take your time when you do your homework, there is no rush!

Each session in the Depression Program is based on previous sessions, and if you track your mood with your Mood Tracker (and keep notes in the spaces provided) you'll see much improvement over the coming weeks.

At the beginning of each session we give you a Weekly Review, which allows you to see how far you've progressed. We save your Weekly Review results in your Session Diary, so you will see a collection of results, which are all based on what you write in your worksheets.

CBT is a lot of work but the good news is that if you follow the program it will all come together for you as you start to feel better.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or concerns.

Josie, Health Educator

Hi everyone,
 
I'm a regular on Panic Center and when I found out about Depression Center I was pretty excited. So I guess I should introduce myself here.
 
I'm a 23 year old female who has been suffering from severe anxiety and depression since October 2006. As of late, I've felt like my depression has been far worse than my anxiety, and it's frustrating beyond anything. I have absolutely terrible mood swings, I get angry so easily and the worst part of it all is that I take it out on my husband...and we've not even been married for three months yet. I'm paranoid, scared of everything, I will leave dishes for days because I refuse to clean, I hate cooking I don't even like to cook for my husband...and I should be taking care of him, and loving him. All I want to do is sleep...and sleep and sleep. And I can't concentrate! It took me probably 40 minutes to type this little blurb, and I assure you I am not a slow typer...I just can't concentrate. 
 
The worst part of all this? I never used to be like this, and I don't see an end to it either. I used to take medication for depression and anxiety, but the side effects were far worse than dealing with the depression and anxiety without the meds. I just don't know what else to do, I am so SICK of being miserable and paranoid :(
 
Thanks for reading,
Spartan
