been to see my consultant today sad. I went back on medication a couple of months ago after going to see my gp.

Consultant doesn't think that medication is doing much/anything, he seems to think i'm just in a rut and dissatisfied with life and that it's my own low self esteem and negative thoughts that are pulling me down. I don't know what else I can do ? Dh works full time and i work part time as we need the cash. we have 2 dc aged 5 and 9. We own our house and have cars (we struggle with money but isn't everyone at the moment?). Isn't this what people strive for? Shouldn't I consider myself lucky and appreciate what i have? what is wrong with me?

didldid - he didn't suggest anything. I've previously had cbt - the principles make so much sense but I end up arguing with myself inside my head with the different thoughts. He just said he'd see me in 3 months sadconfused

behappi - what's EFT and how has it worked for you? And what other 'resources' do you mean. I'm beginning to feel that nothing will help to aleviate these horrible feelings
