Find out what is : bothering you by going to therapy. There may be some deep issues from your past bothering you that need discussing in order to leave you entirely. Psychologists can make appropriate referrals to any other professionals based on what else is going on with you. This might be grieving or due to a big new change in your life. Good luck. Getting help means feeling better sooner.

Have you recently: lost a loved one or had some other trauma? You may be grieving. "Feeling Good" by David Burns is a good self-help book but a visit to a mental health professional can speed up your progress. Peace and good health.

DEPRESSION: Get an evaluation from a psychiatrist to help identify what depression means to you and whatever else may be bothering you. Consider recommendations for medication if any are given. Get a referral for a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Meds and therapy combined are most optimal; no just one or the other.
