Went to therapy for two years. One day my therapist told me she felt I had dealt with all my stuff from the past and said she felt the things I had going on were related to current events and such... I wasn't sure at the time, but eventually realized she was right!

Since 1989, off and on with about 5 different therapists. Sometimes it was years in between. Finally, about 6 months ago I found one who I trusted, and who is competent enough to recognize that the SA I went through as a child might actually be the root of my life long struggles with depression, with anxiety and with relationships. The others all prescribed me meds, or tried to help me get my life in control or told me I was stuck with depression for life. They all helped me to avoid my real problems. Part of the fault lies with me no doubt for lying to them about how I was doing after the crisis that led me to them abated.

Short version: 6 months, and he is totally awesome!
