    my name is olive and I'm a college student. I have issues with generalized anxiety disorder and depression (which I suppose goes without saying). I see a therapist every 2 weeks and she is helping me in some areas but I lie to her about some of my past and minimize the severity of my suicidal thoughts. I am here because I don't really know where else to turn.

    Hi Olive and welcome...therapists can only treat the things we reveal to them...can you try to tell her something more disclosing and she how it is handled? Maybe also talking about trust and why you do not disclose more would be of value. Welcome again and please keep posting

    Hello Olive and welcome to the forums, i'm here to help you whenever you need help.

    Feel free to send me a PM!


    I am happy to hear that you have a therapist, this is definately very important however i would like to help you to trust her more - its important that you say your whole past and to say that you are suicidal - this way she can help you better.

    How long have you been visiting this therapist? Do you think you can visit this therapist on a weekly basis?
