So what

Postby KingsleyHere » Sun Sep 01, 2019 6:49 pm

Been in therapy for trauma issues for a long time. Always optimistic with a can do let's work this out attitude. Altho had bouts of what T called depression, came out of it & moved on. After a serious revelation, the bottom just dropped out. I just don't care..about anything. Ridiculous that I know I don't care, should, but I don't care. My T doesn't do meds if there is anyway to avoid it. Hospital for safety issues or at my request. Not stupid. Know what not to say. Rationally, know eventually something has to change. Looking for experienced advise. Is this something I can just wait out?

There is such a thing as therapy burnout, when you run out of things to talk about or it is time to move to the next level.
There is apathy when we are numb to the world around us. That is a warning sign to me when I don't care anymore. It is a return to isolation and rigid thinking that got me in trouble in the first place.
Maybe meds in low-dosage could take the edge off? Would you be adverse to trying that? Many times therapy in conjunction with a mild anti-depressant/anti-anxiety med can help.
Best of luck to you. :D
