I am not AJ, obviously, but I can tell you from my own experiences as a young, depressed BL that it does indeed help. It doesn't do miracles, of course, but it does help. Basically, it held me over until I could come to terms with my issues and resolve my mental problems. At that point, I quit the anti-depressants and have lived a fairly happy life since. With one caveat, I didn't know it at the time but you are supposed to consult with your doctor about quitting the anti-depressants and I didn't; as a result, I suffered through a variety of withdrawal symptoms that would have been avoided had I weaned myself off them like a doctor would have had me do. I was stupid and thought I had things figured out so didn't need doctors anymore. I did need them for at least that last stretch.
My psychologist knew I was a BL. It wasn't a bad idea to tell him, but neither was it a good one. He failed to do anything of value with his psychoanalysis, indeed it was disappointing to be in a situation where I obviously knew more about my own condition than the doctor treating me did. But he tried and at least he provided me with the right medications.
