Pre-Treatment Diary

Since it’s been almost exactly a year since my first psychotherapeutic session (the anniversary will be on Tuesday), I added a new section to the blog, a “Pre-Treatment Diary“. Originally a collection of messages written for a group of friends, it gives some insight into the process of seeking help, the side-effects citalopram had on me, how my moods kept crashing time and again as well as various clinical tests, interviews and my first MRi-scan at the hospital… Unfortunately, I lacked the energy to describe those first CBASP sessions in greater detail –  something I rather regret now – but it helps giving a more complete picture of my recovery process prior to the existence of this blog.
