Hey everybody. I'm not totally sure what to put here. I'm 27, have a stable job and work 40 to 50 hours a week. I want to start therapy but honestly with my hours it is a hassle. I've tried therapy in the past and had bad experiences whether it is being forgotten about, overdosed or just told that I don't need to come back. Apprehensive is not strong enough a word. For a couple of years I started to feel more whole but recently in the past 3 I have slowly begun descending further than ever before. I don't seem to have interests, hobbies, likes, dislikes, dreams, or anything resembling a healthy life. I apologize as my thoughts are scattered. Hopefully, this is somewhat cohesive and an acceptable start.
Thank you for reading,
John

Thanks! I have tried a few medications and talk therapy with various professionals. I was overdosed on the medications each time. And, yes, a therapist/aprn forgot I was a patient of hers when we called to tell her I was having a severe allergic reaction to Lamictal and was on my way to the urgent care clinic! My faith in therapy is almost nonexistent. I do want to try, though.
