I have suffered from depression for over 40 years now. And there has been a lot of repressed anger, sadness, frustration- this list could go on forever. My treatment dealt, in an almost unbelievably gentle way, with the issues of anger and sadness at the root of many of my problems.
It is shocking how things that happened so long ago can still affect one’s life and make happiness difficult… so I was a bit skeptical about how easy it seemed to be. But, when I felt much better after a week and had no sign of relapsing I was happily surprised.
We are all carrying old hurts around. I am blessed I have been able to get help to deal with them. I feel more grounded, focused on my feelings and what I want to do with my life. One step at a time.
I want to say thank you to my therapist, Matt – a lovely person who made feel safe and understood.
