I have found that some kind of change helps me snap out of it. Yes, I think the problem is existential depression. cause I had the other kind. too, and worked for 4 years with a fantastic therapist. It was like I was sleeping, and I woke up.

I got past that last scare. I am more an more commited to the one thing I wanted to do, but was afraid of - music. Somehow I forge ahead. DO you have a reccomendation for Yalom?

AND thanks to everyone who responeded for your compassion.


> I'm sorry to hear you're in a dark spot. I've battled existential depression from time to time-- and at 42, it still rears its ugly head, now and then. Most of the "cure" is in educating yourself and understanding why you feel the way you do-- I found Irvin Yalom's writings very helpful.

> If you seek professional help, make sure you find a therapist well versed in dealing with existential depression.
