Our expert says:
Congratulations on taking the wise step of seeing a shrink - and you are raisin sensible issues which need to be discussed with the shrink, who knows your situaton in detail. Once one starts to open up exploring painful areas and issues, it is unsettling for a while, and one may not benefit from antidepressants, which help with existing deep chemical depressions, and take some weeks to have their full benefits, by which time you nay have cleared this up by continuing to work with your shrink. The feeling down, tired, and lacking in energy could be related to a depression needing medication, or to the therapeutic business you're in the middle of.
So do discuss it with your shrink, by phone if necessary before your next session.
