I understand, Tonti. And just what you mean, too, about recognizing that IT is back. Even the famous British wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill had recurrent Depressions, which he called the Black Dog, which used to come and sit on his chest at times. We need to feel ( and be ) responsible for our actions, which we choose, but not necessarily for our feelings, which we often dont choose. Sorry you've managed to collect so many apparently useless therapists across the years --- there MUST be some good ones out there, somehow evading you so far.
From your description, these were indeed the wrong sort of unskilled therapists. They should not waste time looking for someone to blame, but concentrate on current problems and helping YOU to find solutions to them. This is why I promote CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, because this one specific method not only has research to prove it works, but is practical, fairly short-term, and concentrates on how one is feeling as caused by how one is thinking, and to change this in more fruitful ways. Its benefits are lasting, too. Check out whether there's anyone trained in or using CBT in your area.
Headahces ae quite comon in depression, indeed all sorts of aches, as even if hey have mild physical causes, Depression is a brilliant amplifier of pain and unpleasantness. And I am SO pleased that you're not good at suicide ! Don't get good at it !
