I just went to my second counseling session. Here is the post to my first session....http://www.suicideforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4&order=desc&page=2 Well this time she did not bring up religion at all, and I am glad she did not because as I mentioned before I just do not want any religious counseling. When do you know if you are making progress, or if you should find another counselor? I mean I have no reference so I just do not know. Nothing of great deal was said so I am not sure what to tell you guys. She did recommend that I should go to a doctor or psychiatrist and get on some type of anti-depressant, that way I would be working on my problems from two differnet points...counseling and medication. For anyone on anti-depressants did you go see a doctor or a psychiatrist. I know to see a psychiatrist I can go to the mental health center, which would be cheaper than seeing a doctor since I do not have any insurance. Like I mentioned though, when do you know if you should try someone else or what?
