Therapist: So lets start by telling me when you started feeling like this
If you don't tell me how you're feeling I cannot help you. Many patients think its up to other people to help them overcome depression. However, in the grand scheme of things, you are the only person who can help yourelf.
Liliana: . . .
Okay... I think it started when...
Therapist: So, have you been doing the things I suggested to do? Update me!
Liliana: Well, I've been talking with my mom every night about the dad situation. She's reassured me on a lot of things which makes me feel better. I haven't built up the courage to talk to my friends again, but I'm working on that. I got a tutor and I'm passing all my classes now! I've really been listening to what you've said and taken action.
