    it must be a lot of work to be a fulltime caregiver.

    maybe this was more rhetorical on your part, but honestly i think because that's no guarantee they won't help you in some way. all situations are different and even if the skills didn't work in her situation, that doesn't mean they may not be key to effecting life-altering positive change in your situation. or, at the very least, give you a little extra smoothness on a bumpy path.

    essentially i agree with all who have said there seems to be little harm in giving it a shot. good luck

    Thanks, skylights. There was more to it than what I wrote about. I didn't want to go into all the details. But I agree, it's worth another try.

    I don't know anything about free counseling services so I can't really give much thought on that, sorry... However I will have to agree with CrystalViolet. Paid ones kind of suck, in my opinion. I've been to two different ones, and they didn't help at all. Waste of time and money, I don't think they even really paid attention, all they wanted was for the hour to finish so they could end the session. Also, both prescribed different meds on the first session lol.
