December 22, 2006, Newsletter Issue #42: How to Prepare for your First Doctor Session

Tip of the Week

Congratulations! You made the decision to seek help for your depression; this is one of the hardest decisions many people face. To allow the first session to go smoothly, prior to deciding to begin therapy, begin a journal.

By documenting how you feel and the amount of time the depressed emotions have occurred can help the doctor determine a course of action to take. When you approach your doctor with a claim about depression, the first question they will ask you is how long have the feelings lasted and when do they most occur. Since you already have a journal, all you need to do is look to answer the doctor's questions.

Being proactive and taking a positive approach to treating your depression will help with long term results.
