    I saw my case manager yesterday. I had called her several days ago crying because the depression has been getting too much for me. We talked on the phone for awhile. Yesterday, when I saw her, we didn't talk much. Just seems I haven't been completely open to everything that's going on. Sometimes I go in and everything is fine. But the moment I'm gone things seems to be falling apart emotionally with me. Does anyone else get like this? I may just start journaling and show it to her so she can better help me. Just feel so frustrated.

    You said you haven't been completely open to everything that's going on, do you mean you can't open up to her when you see her? When I was in therapy, I was usually closed-mouthed, I just couldn't say things out loud that had been going through my head previously, I felt like I was wasting my therapy time...I think that the journaling is a good idea, did she suggest that?

    Are you being completely honest with the team?

    I try my best to be as open as much as possible but sometimes I go in and I'm fine. I just don't get it. I thought maybe journaling would be good so they can see how I am doing. Today has been one of those days I'm struggling. I do tell them when I have a moment that I been feeling depressed. But not much they can do on the meds.

    I think I know what you mean. Like on the days you see your team you feel sort of okay.

    I think that journalling will be helpful.

    I feel okay when I see them but when I am not there, things seems to crash for me emotionally.
