first apointment with my psychologist tomorrow-scared!

And I'm not even sure why I'm scared.

I guess Im just nervous about actually taking the step to get better and talking to a total stranger about my problems. I'm afriad that I'm going to break down and cry in front of her, which is horribly embarrasing for me! The appointment is also in the morning, which is when my anxiety levels are pretty high.

How does one overcome their fear of talking about their problems? I've never really been good with sharing my feelings? Any words of advice on how to make myself more comfortable and relaxed about going?

I was scared at first, but... after I got talking I felt such a huge weight was lifted. I went through a couple - some I just didn't feel confortable with. I kept trying until I found someone that I felt a conection with. You will do fine. It's great to vent! Let me know how it goes!

Well I went and it was okay. And I did cry through most of it like i thought I would, but I think this will be pretty good for me. My therapist seems really nice so I hope this works out.

I'm glas you had a "release"! It is the most important part, to me, in getting better! Keep me updated.
