Self help materials.
« on: July 05, 2014, 01:47:14 PM »
I have some problems when it comes to therapy & medication.

My first/recent therapist (of almost two years,) I went to was very helpful, it's just that there were so many issues with me & new ones cropping up, we didn't have the time to sort everything out. I haven't been to therapy since she moved jobs, and since I moved out of town.

Not only that, but I really can't afford medication at this time, and I don't think there's a free/low cost mental health place in my area. (Transportation is an issue here.)

I've been looking all over the internet for self help pages or books/PDFs. I don't have the money now that I can buy a book (I probably will soon, though,) and I need help finding something I can work with temporarily. I feel like I'm relapsing (Depression,) & I really need to keep that from happening, especially since I'm having a lot of anxiety issues as of late.

So...anyone have any suggestions?

There are free/low cost medication programs in the U.S.

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all suggestions are general in nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
