Social Work/dependent personality disorder
QUESTION: I've been diagnosed with dependent personality disorder.
When I try to force myself to do something adult, I literally break out into tears and feel like a child.
What are some key things I can do to overcome fear and get better?
ANSWER: Dear Liz
I suggest that you should visit a counselor or psychologist.
Besides, it will be helpful if you practice some mind control exercises atleast for a few weeks or months. You could choose YOGA, meditation or such similar options that will be greatly useful.
Hope it helps

QUESTION: Thank you I just started therapy a week ago.
Are there certain medications that you recommend that I can ask my psychiatrist about? Right now I'm on Sertaline and Ativan and I notice no change in my depression and anxiety..
Thanks for your mail back. I am not a medical doctor and hence will not be in a position to comment on the medicine.
However, Is hall suggest to practice some mental exercises expect depending exclusively on the psychiatric drugs.
