  • afraid of diagnosis?

    I am scared to death I will be told I"m bipolar, or (again) that I have "frequent and intense psychotic episodes" when I one time hallucinated. I feel my life was ruined by that and I am terrified to tell the truth when I go to therapy because I have some dark thoughts. I'm afraid I will be locked away. They are not constant, and are not acted upon. I have an appointment with a new therapist coming up in 2 months. I'm so afraid of crying in front of her, telling the entire truth, and being labeled.
  • As a therapist I would love to hear what people are looking for. Could anyone out there tell me what you hope to get or expect from a therapist? Are you afraid to go to one?

    I am a marriage and family therapist who specializes in anxiety/trauma/relational therapy. I am always open and interested in hearing what people who have experienced therapy have to say as well as what others who haven't tried it have to say. Please feel free to ask me anything about what to expect from a good therapist!
  • How do I get the moderator to approve the groups I'm trying to make? I already tired to make 3

  • How the heck do I find a therapist? (or any medical professional that could help in general)

    I'm planning on seeing a therapist for my problems (social anxiety, not diagnosed, so that's a problem). I don't know what to look for and what's right for me, do I need a counselor, do I need a psychologist, psychiatrist? Which one is right for me? What do I look for and note when looking for one (medical professional)? And what if I was never checked and diagnosed? Am I qualified to get help from a psychologist? How do I even start omg I have so many questions I can't even write right now. What do I look for in therapists? What do i need to look for when looking at therapists profile online. Please help. Excuse this messy question. I have many symptoms of social anxiety and desperately need help of some sort. Feel free to add additional information on how you found your therapist if you got one. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also I wanna add, I'm looking at Psychology Today therapist finder and what do I look at in there that's important? Thank you.
  • is it anxiety? should I go see a doctor?

    I haven't gone to see a doctor yet but I know that something it wrong. I had what I believe was an anxiety attack a few days ago and ever since then I keep getting waves of anxiety/depression. I say waves because it's not constant. It gets really bad at times and doesn't last very long and then it "breaks" and I feel like everything around me is depressurizing. And when I'm not bad I keep getting nervous that it might come back but then I also feel invinciable and as though I'm fine and it was just a moment and it's gone now. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to take medication but would a therapist help do you think? should I go to a doctor about it? Is it even anxiety that I'm feeling?
  • Tongue Picking Problem

    I'm not sure if I have anxiety or ocd but am very skeptical that I do. I have an odd problem with picking/pulling off taste buds. Ive had this problem for as long as I can remember, i get so into it I dont even notice when I do it until my tongue is missing chunks and my fingers are bloody. Its so disgusting, unsanitary, painful, and just weird. I dont know whats wrong with me and i dont know how to stop.
