I'm thinking about trying to go to a doctor to get help. Maybe to evaluate my mental health...and get meds. etc. I'm very nervous and paranoid about what they might do to me... I have some obvious marks from self-harm, and sometimes I think I don't come off as completely mentally stable. I've also taken some illegal drugs a while ago, and if they happen to find some in my system, would they detain me? I just want to be absolutely sure that they wont force me into anything, or keep tabs on me in any way. Maybe these are ridiculous fears, but I'm completely naive when it comes to hospital procedures are for someone like me. I live in Sweden... and I know most responders are probably going to be Americans. But I suspect the system isn't too different. I have tried to find this information on my own, but it's hard since I don't speak Swedish very well, and I haven't found any good sources in English Thank you for any responses.
