I'm apologize if this is in the wrong section... it seemed to be the best place, but I'm pretty dumb.. so yeah. I've been toying with the idea of seeing a therapist at my school's mental health department now for a couple of months, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I was so close about a month ago when I thought you could sign up for appointments online (you can for all other medical appointments), but then I realized that you needed to make a phone call, and then later that day they'd call you back and do a 'triage', whatever that means. First of all, I have major phone phobia... I seriously can not handle phones. Secondly, the triage call is the same day as the first phone call - there's like no time to recover from the first one. I know I probably sound incredibly childish, but I'm just so scared. And I don't know what to tell them. I'm afraid that they'll think I'm being overdramatic and don't really need help, and that side of me is tempting me to cut up my arms even worse than they are now so I really look like I need help. The other side of me is afraid that they'll think I'm a wreck, so maybe I shouldn't tell them everything... I don't know I'm so scared. Even if I want to tell them everything, I'm really shy and don't talk to anyone off the internet about anything of any importance.. what makes me think I can do it now? I don't know what I'm asking you guys to do.. Maybe those of you who know can tell me what to expect from this 'triage' business? I really do want to get help. I'm so sick of all of this. I'm sorry.
