I am a young professional woman. My problem is that I am feeling a total lack of purpose for waking up in the morning. This is not new because its been going on for years, perhaps since my teenage years. However, I am now really concerned. I just threw away a very promising career opportunity because I felt depressed.
Sometimes everything is fine and I have a good mood but I always end up feeling sad and lonely and clueless about what I want.
It has also been very hard for me to find and maintain a relationship with a man. Also, alcohol abuse has been a constant since I was very young.
I really cannot handle my life anymore. I have a lot of issues that I know cannot be answered or solved by email.
What I would like to know is what to expect from psychological therapy? Can I be fully functional and happy? How long does it take? How do I know if a psychologist is good? Does it work for everybody?
