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 advice is of a general nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.
