I had a shrink and antidepressants during/after my divorce... I never could really tell a difference with the meds, but at this point I'll try anything.<quoted text>
Internet hug. It *will* get better, I promise you. You're doing the right thing, getting a shrink. They can suggest ways to deal with things and it helps to have a neutral party to talk to. Might even get you on antidepressants, which, I gotta say, have made a world of difference in my life. In the meantime, get out and exercise. Make a music playlist of upbeat songs and walk your dogs until their legs fall off. And get some sun. There's none here, it's all grey and brown and cold.
Others have suggested exercise. Considering my plans for tonight fell through (dinner with a female friend... not one who's so close that I would have been tempted to talk about myself all night), a nice long walk with the dogs may be in order.
