We'll take with us memories, images, etc. and feel that love again (eventually.)

Dreams are the only thing that can remain constant for me. When my world came crashing around me, and I didn't have dreams, or a goal or sense of purpose, I just felt like I was falling in a neverending well. But my dream is really all I can cling to right now, and lately it is what gets me through the day.
Love to me is something that comes and goes, that changes, and that more than any other emotion is completely unreliable. I no longer trust it.

As for dreams, I have no dreams any more. Goals, yes, but dreams, certainly not. They are too divorced from reality for me and are never fulfilled.

Now, this post right here relates to what I was saying above. Being able to relate these feelings is an obstacle in and of itself, but being receptive toward those you're attempting to relate to is another issue entirely that needs to be dealt with before counseling is considered.

Over the passing weeks, it has become increasingly clear that you, at this point in your life, are not particularly receptive to the thoughts and opinions of others. And not just their opinion of your state of mind, but about nearly any other subject imaginable. If you want to take a shot at counseling, you need to confront yourself on this matter first because, yes, from a practical point of view, it would be a waste otherwise.

I agree with this. The present is all we definitively have. If an afterlife exists, it is lost in the mist of the future. Let's enjoy what we know we've got.

Any psychiatrist worth your time and money and their profession would not tell you that you are lying. You might need medication, and it can help you - simply taking something for depression does not mean you are overmedicated!!

I take medication for depression but it doesn't work at all even after trying just about every one out there. I pretend it works so I don't have to go through drug after drug again. No medicine works and I doubt any ever will. I have to battle through these things alone. I know who and what I am. I don't want someone who doesn't know question that.

I wrote out an incredibly long piece on this issue in FYM about 6 weeks ago. Care to read?

Hmm. To get medication you need to see a psychiatrist, right? Did you actually open up to them and talk to them?

We just work on my social anxiety. We never talk about deeper things.
