I have been resisting professional help for some time now for many reasons ... - cost - anonymity - my inability to open up to strangers - the feeling that they would already have a predisposed answer before even hearing what I have to say, so I would not feel like they were suggesting what was best for my situation. - that they would want me to talk and talk over many sessions and not provide answers and or remedies in a timely manner. - that if I told them I was suicidal that they would have me sent off to some institute. (happened to someone I know) - others reasons, but I can't remember right now. At this point though, I'm still of the opinion that I will leave and still looking for temporary help for a few months. I just need some relief from drugs or other answers that can make me feel better for a few months while I take care of certain things. For those of you who have been to a professional for help, I'd like to know if the above reasons are right, possible, wrong, etc. Also, would it be possible to see a professional anonymously? Are then any free anonymous services that can provide me some answers/drugs without having to get grilled over many sessions for many weeks first? And if I do get drugs prescribed, won't I need to provide some ID, etc? Thanks, -Yada.
