Not open for further replies.
today i had to go to the doctors for some more pain meds my mother ended up blurting out that i was depressed and the doctor said that maybe i should get some help but im terrified he asked me questions like had i thought about harming my self but all i could do was stay silent and look at the floor or deny things.i have heard so many horror stories about shrinks and people being fucked about by health care professionals so im really worried about this :(

Hey, donno where you live but its different everywhere. All I know is I wouldn't be where I am now without help, very likely would have attempted and possibly succeeded.. my point is its so hard to get out of something like this without help, but yes you need good help.

I would say go for it, if they aren't helping ask for someone else until they do. Which horror stories worry you specifically?

I'm lucky, I have a great pdoc. Not every story is a horror story, sweetie. Give it a try...if one doesn't seem to fit, speak up and try another until you find someone who seems to "get" it and you.
