Is there anyone out there who been in therapy and on meds this long that believes there is still hope. I don’t believe any of this is worth it, I don’t have the will, want or motivation to keep working especially towards nothing!
I suffer from similar conditions to you and have been in therapy for an extensive amount of time.
I won’t promise you that it will get better. Mostly through my own experiences, my life changes like the seasons. I will have periods where I’m okay – just okay. Then I will have bad moments but fundamentally I have learned that I tend to live through the bad moments. I don’t live well – I quit jobs, change my name and move states.. but here I am, still living, breathing and able to post a response to your question.
Recently I have become accustomed to the idea that I will most likely be in therapy for the majority of my life and due to this realisation, I have terminated my study in a Psyc degree because of it. I am having a lot of trouble with Depression in the wake of my decision. But I know that my life will go on, I’ll move onto something different and really, who knows what the future will bring?
All I can tell you is to stick it out. Change therapists if you would like – maybe you need a different approach, I’ve been to at least five different therapists before I settled on my current one. Be open to trying new things, I participated in group therapy a while back and quit it because it wasn’t working. Now in my everyday life I use things that I learned in group to cope with different situations and really I think it has been quite helpful. Be open to change and let change happen.
I don’t expect this answer to help you that much. You’ve probably been told this time and time again. I know I am saying it because it’s what I’ve been told. I really have no other advice… hold on and good luck xoxo

I just woke up about 1/2 hour ago from the worst nightmare of my life, no exaggeration. I was struggling to breath and could see someone close to me, but couldnt get them to hear me to help me and i was dying. Back in december i had a near death experience, i took two medications that had serious interactions and after going to sleep my breathing stopped and if it werent for my wife hearing my labored breathing would be dead right now. i was revived in the back of an ambulance after my breathing had stopped completly, with a breathing tube shoved down my nose surrounded by paramedics. Is the nightmare i had related to the real incident, or just a nightmare, or repressed memories, or what? Please unless you’re a jerk no stupid comments.
However, it is believed that dreams can be the doorway to wisdom being surfassed from your soul or subconcious being. I dreams are annalyzed properly, they can provide much knowledge.
Look closely at your life, what is missing? Have you earnestly understood the value your wife has for saving your life? Have you forgotten how enriched your life may be? Are you still carelessly using meds or other things that may harm what was given back to you(your life). Have you learned what was intended for you to learn from your mishap.
Your answers to these questions will tell you. If you have not gained the wisdom from your experience, than you can probably expect to have that or a similar dream again.
