People tell the truth as fully as they can in order to be treated and get better as completely as they can. And if you are having those feelings...isn't it in the best interest of you, the ones you love, and strangers if you're completely examined? What if something were to happen? Strong thoughts can become action in the right scenario. I'd think on it about being entirely honest.

@broomhitches: Unless you really seem like your gonna leave the office and shoot someone right now (or live in a very different country from me) than thats nonsense, no ones gonna lock you up. And If you do really seem like your gonna hurt someone immediately, like screaming scary threats all over ect.ect., temporary measures to ensure you don't seem perfectly reasonable.

I think the first problem is definitely trust. Once you can no longer rely on others to shift some of your stress off, you become isolated and everything builds up in a pressure pot. This leads to either outburst or further reclusion from the issue and/or others entirely, which obviously just makes everything worse. This sucks even further if you don't even have family capable of understanding or even caring about your problems. For people suffering from these issue, I know it's hard and you don't want to hear it, but I can't stress these several points more than this:

1. Accept the fact the you are going through hard times. Keep a journal and write about your thoughts and other things you wouldn't want the public or even close relatives to know.

2. Excercise. The worse thing you can do is lose your health over this. Don't starve, start eating healthy, and go for walks/runs and start meditating privately. I realize many will just resign themselves with the thought process of YOLO or I could care less about me anymore (me too at one point!) but this isn't the real you, this is just messed up you not thinking clearly any more. As pointless as it sounds, to get back real you, you have to do stuff you don't want to.

3. Accept the fact that a lot of people suck. Think of world leaders as an example, they have many people who dislike them as much as others like them! If you realize that other people don't matter more than yourself then you start to not give a flying hoot what others think about you. This should help with the trust a little bit and you can take risks trying to talk to someone who seems nice and they might understand. If not, who needs them anyway, amirite?

Seriously though, the journal thing helped me personally a lot and I am just starting a routine to excercise and excercising a little more restraint when it comes to eating. I hope this advice helps someone. Last piece of advice, if you are religious this should help a lot. If not, start reading books regularly. This is a little better entertainment than watching tv/movies/internet and playing games since it can develop your thought process a little more and build patience, which is a very big key in anxiety issues and depression. I think it is interesting too that many writers suffered from similar issues and it reflects in their writing! So you will at least find something in common!

You have to find a mental health professional you can trust, and then be honest with them. Seeking out help is the right thing to do, and there are many good, professional individuals who can provide you help. I'd probably ask @jasonr86 a bit about this if you need help finding someone who you can talk to.

@truthtellah: Hey! I'm here, I'm here.

@broomhitches Well, there's a few things to keep in mind based off of what you've said. Professionals in all health fields have a duty to warn if they believe there is a serious threat to self or others. So if you spoke to a therapist and they believed you seriously intended to kill yourself or someone else they are required, by law, to initiate a process that could lead you to be hospitalized. Saying that a hospitalization is worse than prison is a bit drastic honestly but it isn't a lot of fun either. Their job there is to keep you safe and they have to be sure that you are before you leave. If they don't, like with the therapist who doesn't initiate that whole process, they could get in a lot of trouble as well. They are working from the standpoint that this is a life or death situation. So they take it very seriously as they should.

BUT, it takes an awful lot for someone to be hospitalized. A specific person, called a Designated Mental Health Professional, has to come out and assess clients who are being considered for hospitalization. A normal, non-designated professional can't hospitalize someone. They don't have that authority.

Also, most health care professionals are used to dealing with people who are suicidal and homicidal. Especially mental health professionals. So we won't suddenly jump to hospitalization as soon as a client states some self or other harm thoughts, tendencies, etc. The threat needs to be imminent.

As truthtellah stated, you need to find a professional you trust and can work with. Every professional is different. Some clients work great with me. Others can't stand me. It all depends on the therapist and the client and how they relate to one another. But you won't get anywhere if you don't a) want the help b) want to change and c) are able to be as open as possible.

Hope that helps dude. Please don't shy away from help because of what might happen or might not happen. I can't think of many people who regretted taking a chance even if it doesn't work out.

@broomhitches:

You really do. And, really, you wouldn't be hospitalized because we all just want to be assholes. It's done to keep people alive and safe. So it really needs to be a severe situation. Most clients aren't hospitalized.

There are different forms of social anxiety, so I would guess most of these people on here really don't have a personality disorder nor really have huge social anxiety other then withe the other sex.
So if you have to drink to be able to interact with people then you need to see a psychiatrist, if you just have problems with interacting with females, you need to see a psychiatrist. you probably don't need SNRIs or SSRIs but they could help. but say no to benzodiazepines, for the reason you will get addicted to them. and when you stop you will have something that looks like Alcohol abstinent symptoms with hallucinations, paranoia and epileptic seizures which will scare you the first times and then you kinda get used to them, but if you have not been suicidal you will become suicidal because the withdrawal last 3 months on the stronger version with long half life.

Or they could last 3weeks but it will be intense and quite sneaky, in many ways it can be worse then opiates.

So if you get a Benzodiazepine then stay on them, don't stop with them. I will say have been addicted to both opiates and benzodiazepine and the last one has been the worse, because I have gotten several seizures plus I have gotten general Amnesia, plus psychosis several times plus if you have had really hardcore muscle pain you will get that also.
So, yeah. Say no to these ones.
Also I will add that I have been addicted to Opiates and strong Benzo. I personally think you are getting more trouble then what its worth.
