>>26251455 Daily reminder that if you're depressed you need to change your environment. Move out of your parents house. Ask them for a month's worth of rent and utilities in cash. Tell them that you'll pay them back next year. Any decent parent would help you. Move out and never look back.
We went over my past, my background, what the root causes of my anxiety were. The exercises are good! It ties together mind and body and helps centre me. Every therapist has different exercises, but mine were for intrusive thoughts and extreme bouts of rage, which is dangerous when you're operating a 30 ton piece of machinery.
By itself, it won't save you, but used in conjunction with other stuff, and in earnest, it helps turn the tide.
For me personally, I participated in a propanolol study along with the CBT. THAT was extremely effective, along with proper medication-- MAOI's don't do anything for me.
Our backgrounds are extremely different, so theres not much use in sharing what me and her talked about.
Basically what I CAN tell you is the exercises are actual physical things you can do to help calm down, with a mental component where you try to observe and obtain a state of mind that steers you away from old, familiar neural pathways.
>>26252283 True depression cripples you mentally. You know you need to do something, you WANT to do something but your mind doesn't let you. That's on top of the fact that very few people live in a place with rich enough parents that the second option can be done.

A pro-tip I got from the shrink was to set up something like learning a language, or taking an art class or some shit. The two things that were good were
1) It means you have something planned to do and so can do something without making any organisational effort, which we all know is shit-hard when you're down. 2) it forces you to interact, however superficially, with other people and be normal. And as we know from CBT - what you think is what you become. Keep fixating on suicide and you'll eventually do it, or at least it'll be upping your chances significantly. Equally, be forced to interact with society is good because it keeps your brain on the "now" and not some flights of imagination about how bad things were, and are.
