Thank you so much for adding your professional perspective, Hilary Jacobs Hendel.
The problem with me has been losing five years of my life to major depressive disorder and not having the financial means to access therapy because I live in America now and can’t afford the co-pays despite having insurance.
Why I collapsed is a combination of things, but piling up one thing on top of the next became too much. The root is in childhood and since I’m going back to Europe for a while, I look forward to exploring all this with a therapist there.
Meanwhile, I shall have a good look at your site and try to get a copy of your book as it’ll probably help. :-)
