counseling

I made an appointment with a therapist.  I have needed to do this for years - years - and have put off doing so because really, who wants to deal with all this shite?  Not me, that's for sure.  I've been taking an anti-depressant since 1995 with pretty good results.  I have more to deal with though and meds alone are not enough (damn it).  I gave them a chance, more than enough, but they don't make sad feelings or pain completely go away.  And my anxiety has worsened or I've become more aware of it.  Sometimes I find I'm taking very shallow breaths, not a panic attack but not fully breathing...I have to stop myself and inhale deeply.  My appointment is September 21st.  Plenty of time to cancel it between now and then.
