Our expert says:
If you start by assuming you will fail, and almost ought to fail --- you really have loaded the dice against yourself, haven't you ? Would it represent some odd sort of success, to fail ? This is exactly where CBT counselling, done properly could be so powerful --- you hacve a strong negative habit of thought, assuming you are a failure and
are destined to fail, and expecting to fail. Such bad habits one can learn to change. Maybe some of the goals you set for yourself are unrealistically high ; maybe you have a habit of self-sabotage. All meds have maximum side-effects in the first couple of weeks, before their benefits are obvious to you.
Pleased to hear you will keep your appointment with the shrink --- work with him/ her and make this time a success.
