    i'm going to see my doctor tomorrow, to talk to him about going to a therapist.
    i'm scared
    but also kind of hopeful i guess.
    i just don't want to end up with some person staring at me, expecting me to just blurt out all these problems and do nothing. i guess i just don't know how they go about trying to help people and i sort of want a guarantee that it will help when really i know it might not.
    tonight i've gone through so many different scenarios in my head, of how it might go tomorrow, how i might react, whether i'll cry and whether i'll still just feel like taking XXXXXX.
    i don't want to fail at this too, like everything else.

    There is no failing on your part. They each have there own style I always gave a psychologist (they are the only ones I feel teach you how to get better and don't just sit there and listen like a plant. I always give it two tries and the see how i feel aout it.) It is not they fail or you fail it is just finding the right mix and feel so hang in there...remember they care and want to help.

    take care B...and good luck

    Take it slowly,maybe write down how you're feeling and give it to your doctor. You can do this, I know you can!! Good luck honey, and I hope he can refer you to a therapist/counsellor :) Let us know how it goes!
    You can PM me anytime. :heart:

    I think you will get alot from it Triggs. Your psychologist will guide you the first meeting is more an introduction getting to know your history and families history. Good idea to write down ahead of time any concerns or questions you have and hand it to dr Psychologist really care let us know how it goes okay
