Dear Dr Bob,

Thank you for your site - the information here has made a big difference to me.

I'm aware you want to keep this thread to medications but I wanted to let you know I wouldn't have found the other discussion and reading the postings on CBT here gave me huge relief.

I suffer from severe recurrent depression and it was wonderful to read that other patients had felt the same anger and despair when CBT hadn't worked for them.

I felt acutely to blame when no matter how much homework I did it didn't help me to feel better. What was wrong with me that this "wonder therapy" wouldn't work? It was obviously my fault!

I felt even more suicidal and hopeless than before.

I think many mental health professionals' obsession with CBT and their assurances to clients that this theory of depression explains it all is frankly dangerous.

On a happier note, after trying 7 other drugs my psychiatrist finally decided to try the unpopular MAOI's. I am on Nardil, and though it is early days (and the exhausting side effects pretty hard to take) it already seems this drug is going to help me enormously.
